Parents upset after learning Little River daycare will close

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Several parents who take their kids to Little River Child Development Center are upset following the news they received that the daycare will be closing on March 1.

Parents who wanted to remain anonymous said they received a letter last week saying the daycare would be closing for good. They say the letter cited birth rates as a reason for shutting down, but many parents were skeptical of that claim.

The situation left parents scrambling to find new daycares for their children. Some parents say they have had a hard time finding new daycares because many are at full capacity. Many parents say they wished there would’ve been more notice so they would have more time to find a new daycare.

The owner of the daycare declined to comment for this story.
