American families are struggling with the high costs of childcare. Parents across the country are struggling to afford one of the most significant expenses in their family budget – childcare! You never really understand this until you have a child of your own and you are writing the checks or figuring out the numbers to see if it makes sense for you or your spouse to stay home full time to provide that care. If you have twins like us, there are no Buy One, Get One Free deals out there, or least not that I have found.
Over the past decade, the childcare affordability story remains unchanged – in many homes across the country, child care costs exceed the cost of housing, college tuition, transportation, or food with more than 20% of American families going into debt to pay for childcare and preschool.
