RANSON, W.Va. - Little People's Place Day Care will close Feb. 13 after 20 years of service because it can no longer afford to serve the mostly lower income families who utilize it.
"We have worked very hard for several years to see that this very thing did not happen. However, we are now at a point where there are no alternatives left," said Louise E. Bower, president of the Little People's Place board of directors.
Over the years, the day care center had begun to focus more on serving lower-income families who paid on a sliding scale based on their income, or who received day care supplement funds from the state, she said.
