昆州托儿所提高收费 预计仍将继续涨价

昆州许多父母已在生活成本危机中感受到与日俱增的压力,如今再遭日托费用上涨困扰,一些托儿中心将收费提高了8%之多。业内专家警告说,未来几个月可能会有进一步涨价。

据《信使邮报》报导,一些托儿所已将日常收费提升至与布里斯班12个月内消费价格指数(CPI)涨幅匹配的水平。Goodstart早教中心是众多因成本上涨而不得不提高收费的机构之一,其发言人将收费上涨归因于Covid-19病毒大流行、流感和出勤率不足,这些因素都导致收入下降。

“作为一个非营利性机构,我们已经努力将3月份的成本控制在最低限度,远远低于早教部门的平均增幅。” 这位女发言人说。

“收费的变化有助于确保我们的团队享有必要资源和支持,以保证每个人的安全。”

一些托儿所在发给家长的信中解释了收费增加的原因,其中包括最低工资增加、准备膳食与零食等新鲜原料成本的增加,以及尿布和湿巾等日用品成本的增加。

日托中心比较网站Kindicare的首席执行官Benjamin Balk表示,大多数全国范围运营的日托供应商最近也提高收费从4%到8%不等,可能还会进一步增加。

他说:“家长应该做好准备,随着通货膨胀率持续上升,有几家供应商在1月和2月已经提高了收费,他们将在7月或8月再次涨价,以应对成本的上升。”

Balk先生还说,成本上升的背后有许多原因,包括价格的同步和租金的增加、工人的流失以及因Omicron病毒流行推迟的招生。

“这可以说是早教机构在过去十年间所面临的最艰难的财政年度。” 他说,“大多数供应商并不想通过收费增长加大父母的压力,他们是想尽量避免在不利影响的情况下继续经营。”

人力短缺也影响了该行业,托儿所要求工人与孩子比例适当,这意味着在没有足够的工作人员或学生的情况下,入托率必须达到60%。

Balk先生表示,这样就使各中心处于亏损状态,也是该行业在努力保留其劳动力并吸引新人加入的原因。

作为父母,他们可以向托儿所提出一系列“合理的问题”,以确保他们仍然获得最佳的资金价值。

“有些供应商在公共假期也是不收费的。同样重要的是,还要检查你的供应商与该地区的其他日托机构相比是否增加了收费。”
