What is the Cost of Child Care in your State?

The cost of child care can be straining on parents. A year's worth of child care costs often exceeds the cost of housing, college tuition, transportation and food.  Parents must select a child care provider that is affordable while still offering a safe, nurturing environment that enriches children's development.  There are many child care options and parents are typically hesitant about which one to choose.
