What state is the least expensive for child care?
The cost of child care is a big ticket item….check out the state to state comparison by Pete the Planner!
Choosing child care is a big decision for many families. One of my favorite financial gurus Pete the Planner posted some very interesting numbers today. As any parent who is paying for child care knows, it is expensive! Take a look at the annual average cost of child care state by state for child care centers. For those families with both parents working outside of the home, this will give you an idea of your annual cost and comparison with neighboring states. For those of you thinking of going back to work, this will help you with budget planning. Taking a look at the numbers, I am glad I don’t live on the east coast!
Take a breath, enjoy the joyful moments of each day, and remember you don’t have to be perfect to be the perfect parent.
