Rumors are wrong: Gavras Center in Auburn isn’t closing

The E. John Gavras Center in Auburn is not closing contrary to local rumors.

The Auburn Citizen reports that officials with the organization aren’t sure where the rumor started, but the reality is that while they face challenges, plans are not to close.

The center recently discontinued its toddler day care program and limited the number of special needs students it can serve.

One official tells The Citizen that a major rate hike, prompted by the state office of Children and Family Services resulted in the center only being able to sign up a few children for fall session.

The weekly rate parents pay for day care went from $206 to $275. The outcome, in their estimation, was many parents being discouraged from seeking child care.

Next year will mark the 70th anniversary of the center.
