On Wednesday, August 24, 2011, NACCRRA will release "Parents and the High Cost of Child Care: 2011 Update". The report provides information about the cost of child care in 2010 from a survey of Child Care Resource and Referral State Network offices and local agencies.
The cost of child care in every state for infants, 4-year-olds, and preschool-age children is reported for child care centers and family child care homes and contrasted against income, household costs and college costs.
We have made available the following information so that you can "read ahead" to better understand the report and to prepare for any related press inquiries. We are hopeful that you will join with us and send out your own release to state and local press on Wednesday and have provided a draft release in which you need only fill in some blanks.
