Child Care Fees Rise in Henderson County

Aug 16, 2011

The local school board voted 4-1 to raise the weekly cost of child care in the Henderson County school district effective Sept. 1 to help meet state requirements that say the child care program must be self-sustaining. School board member Lisa Baird made the motion on Monday to raise the weekly charge from $85 to $100 for children in the 3- to 4-year-old program when they attend a full day of child care, which is essentially daycare.
