Default Rate Increases

So the state of Illinois, despite being broke, is increasing their rates for state paid child care providers. 2 of my 3 daycare children are state funded. I know it says somewhere that you cannot charge the state more than what you charge private pay families, which after this increase from the state, will be the case here. So I'm going to have to raise rates for my one private family, from 25 per day to 27 per day until their child turns 3 in November at which time he'd go down to 26. Or I guess I could keep him at 27. I know the parents can afford the extra few dollars a week, but I'm wondering how I should notify them. Just give them a sheet with my new rate structure, or should I type a more personal letter to them explaining why my rates are increasing?

Any advice is welcome! Or even if you have a template/letter of your own for me to follow and tweak to make my own?

Thanks in advance!
