In order to clear up some confusion about child care rates, we have provided some information to help compare your current rates to the Little Huskies rates
- Remember that our rates are figured out at a monthly rate not a weekly rate. During the months that there are five weeks the rates do not increase.
- In order to figure out an accurate weekly full time rate for Little Huskies you must take monthly rate divided by 4.3 (weeks in a month).
- In order to compare your current weekly situation, multiply by 4.3.
