There’s relief for parents of special needs children in Falls Church, Va., where a child care center was in danger of closing.
Easter Seals and the Falls Church City Council reached a deal Monday night to allow the Child Development Center to continue operating on the city-owned property for two more years.
A new lease extension will raise the rent from $30 a month to $3,000 a month.
Falls Church had originally asked for a new lease at $120,000 a year. Easter Seals had said it could not afford to operate at that price.
Parents with special needs children at the center were worried about finding other affordable care at such a short notice if the center had to close.
