The state of Illinois minimum wage was increased from $10.00 an hour to $11.00 and hour as of January 1st, 2021. At the same time the state of Illinois increased the childcare daily rates 12% to continue high quality childcare in Southern Illinois. Malone's Early Learning Center feel that a 12% increase would be a heavy burden on our private pay parents, so we raised our rates by a little over 10%.
