Indiana Expensive For Child Care

Indiana is one of the least affordable states in the country for child care, according to a newly-released report from Child Care Aware of America.

Indiana ranks as the fourth least affordable state in terms of toddler child care at a center, which costs an average of nearly 10,900-dollars a year. For a single parent making the state median income of just over 26-thousand dollars, that parent would spend nearly half of their income on child care for a toddler.

Currently, it costs more to send your child to a licensed center than it does to pay for their college public tuition, which costs about 91-hundred dollars a year, according to the study.
