Yes! What irked me most, though, was when Tier 2 providers took a cut in their rate while the Tier 1 providers got an increase in their already higher rate. Basing rates on the percentage of public school students who qualify for free or reduced lunch seems unfair to me. Child care providers who live in relatively wealthy communities don't necessarily make the same kind of money their neighbors do. Both Tier 1 and Tier 2 providers are required to pay for infant formula and good, quality food for the children in their care. In my opinion, they should be reimbursed at the same rate.
