I recently had a 5% increase across the board.

I wrote a short letter that basically said...for as long as I have been in operation, I have not raised rates. Unfortunately with this ever changing economy, I find it necessary to raise rates to maintain the same experience your child/ren continue to enjoy here at daycare.

Most of the parents received a $1.00 per day price increase. I found that breaking it down and saying $1.00 per day is a lot better than saying $20 a month. They like small numbers.

Explain what the price increase is for also. Changing economy, increases in utilities, water, groceries, etc.
