Citing rising costs associated with the Affordable Care Act, Mobberly Baptist Church’s Child Development Center will be closing its doors March 13.

Staffers of the center and parents of children enrolled at the facility were informed tonight during a special meeting at the church. All parents received a letter with details on the decision as well.

In a statement the church said the closing would not alter regular childcare and preschool activities provided during worship services on Sundays.

The church said newly-registered students will have their registrations fees refunded, and supply fees for the spring semester will be refunded to each family.
