Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, 24, 1974 r Community calendar Observe Christmas in quiet and praise with us on Christ- inas Day, from 7-30 to 8 30 p in at the Christian Science church, 1203 4th AV-. S. Some local day nurseries increasing rates Jan. 1 300 SUNGLASSES to choose from AVAILABLE IN YOUR RX Two out of three privately operated Lethbridge day nurseries blame rising food and labor costs for fee increases planned for Jan. 1. Operators of both Cuddle Bunny and Kradle Koop day nurseries said in telephone interviews late last week that they have been especially hard-hit by hikes in food and salaries and will be attempting to offset these losses by "reasonable" rate increases at the beginning of the new year. Nancy Wenzl of the Cuddle Bunny nursery, where rates are set on a week- ly basis, says she will implement a 25- cent a day increase for each child attending her centre, beginning Jan. 1. Jean Staudinger, operator of the Kradle Koop, says her centre will also be increasing fees in January, by about per child per month. Bernice Costanzo, owner of Costanzo's Day Care Centre, said she was "not raising fees in January at all" Cuddle Bunny's fee scales vary depending on the number of children from the same family attending the nursery and the length of time they have been with the centre. Mrs. Wenzl says at present 50 per child per day is the minimum amount she can charge without losing money. She cites a week as an average charge, to main- tain one child in the centre, nine hours a day, five days a week. Mrs Staudinger says Kradle Koop sets fees on a monthly basis and quotes per month as an average cost to maintain a child in her nursery for a five-day week basis. She says her fees depend upon the income of the parents as well as the number of children from the same family in attendance. Most children, she says, spendoiine and one- half to ten hours a day in Kradle Koop. Mrs. Wenzl said the increases were "not at all out of "We're not making money from this increase, we're just making a decent living and trying to meet costs. We're certainly not socking it away." She said most parents have accepted news of fee increases as another inevitable result of inflation. Cuddle Bunny is licensed to handle 35 children. Kradle Koop, licensed for 25 youngsters, cares for mostly infants. Both Mrs. Staudinger and Mrs. Wenzl agree that keeping up with food costs is a constant struggle. Both provide children with a full noon meal and afternoon snacks. Mrs. Wenzl says one of her biggest food increases has been a to per case jump in the cost of fruit juice concentrate. Children consume a "tremendous" amount of juice, she says. Mrs. Staudinger lists fruit juice, milk and vegetables as her most expensive provisions. The nursery also provides diapers for infants in its care. "Costs of equipment and toys are always she adds, "and we must also maintain furniture and equipment in good condition." Mrs. Staudinger said the monthly increase will "barely cover" an- ticipated escalation in wage and con- sumer goods in January. ,She says Kradle Koop has only increased fees once before in two and one-half years of operation. Child care centres at the University of Lethbridge and Lethbridge Com- munity College expect no fee increases in the early new year. Roma Christopher, director of North Lethbridge Day Care Centre, the city's only subsidized child care facility, says the basic sliding scale upon which fees are calculated will not change in January.
