Some people just completely insist on having these things referred to as “kids” and one of the huge things a parent has to give is child care during infancy and early childhood. It's not exactly affordable either, as child care costs have been increasing away for a while. Resource for this article: Child Care Costs

Extreme amount of child care costs

The future of the country lies in the hands of our children, which is not really true, according to George Carlin. He claims that kids will be adults by the time the future has arrived meaning kids are not the future.

The child care industry has grown a ton recently because more parents need it. It used to be that one parent would stay home and look after the children while the other would go to work, but we cannot afford to do that anymore. Both parents usually need to work to support a family.

CNN explained that child care costs are ridiculously costly right now, and people are sometimes paying more for it than they are for rent.

That's a lot to teach them to finger paint

The cost of child care depends on your area and can be really expensive. It will cost between $3,000 and $15,000 on average per year. The cost of child car increased 2 percent last year though, according to the Child care Aware of America foundation.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune points out that the cost of an infant at a school is typically around $13,579 a year while a preschooler only expenses $10,040. This is because infants require more care than toddlers. This is a trend seen often at child care centers. The age of the child will make a difference.

Some have Hefty installments required

The National Association of Child care Resources and Referral Agencies showed that the least expensive state for child care was Alabama at $3,016 in 2006. The most costly was $9,628 in Massachusetts. According to USA Today, Minnesota was only at $8,832 that year. New York certain was the most expensive as a share of income since it cost 40.4 percent of a single parent’s income and 11.5 percent of a two-parent family’s income. It was only at $8,530 a year though.

One year of infant care increased a ton, according to the NACCRRA, just to 2010. According to ABC, Minnesota, New York and Massachusetts care expenses increased to $13,650, $13,767, and $19,000. Those are the three highest states.

As a result, in the more costly states, it expenses more to send a child to day care than it does to send them to university and numerous parents, according to the Washington Post, find themselves essentially paying to go to work, as their income from working is exceeded by spending on child care.
