Parents and the High Cost of Child Care: 2012 Report
Child Care Aware of America
"Parents and the High Cost of Child Care: 2012 Report" presents 2011 data reflecting what parents pay for full-time child care in America. It includes average fees for both child care centers and family child care homes. Information was collected through a survey conducted in January 2012 that asked for the average costs charged for child care for infants, 4-year-old children and school-age children in child care centers and in family child care homes in every state. The information was provided by State Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) Network offices and local agencies that maintain data about child care programs in the communities they serve, or it was drawn from the most recent state market rate surveys. Eleven tabular appendices are included: (1) 2011 Average Annual Cost of Full-Time Care by State; (2) 2011 Ranking of Least-Affordable Child Care for an Infant in a Center; (3) 2011 Ranking of Least-Affordable Child Care for a 4-Year-Old Child in a Center; (4) 2011 Ranking of Least-Affordable Child Care for a School-Aged Child in a Center; (5) 2011 Average Child Care Center Costs and Median Housing Costs by State; (6) 2011 Average Annual Costs of Full-Time Child Care in a Center and Public College Tuition and Fees by State; (7) 2011 Ranking of Affordability of Center Care for Single Mothers; (8) 2011 Average Costs for Center-Based Care for an Infant Compared to Varying Poverty Levels; (9) 2011 Average Costs for Center-Based Care for a 4-Year-Old Compared to Varying Poverty Levels; (10) 2011 Urban-Rural Cost Difference for Center Care, by State and 2011 Urban-Rural Cost Difference for Family Child Care, by State; and (11) Licensing Threshold for Family Child Care Home Caring for Unrelated Children.
