Child Care Getting More Expensive

(CNN) — While the experience of raising a child may be priceless, the cost to provide care for them is getting unaffordable.

A report from Child Care Aware of America found the annual cost of infant care increased roughly 2 percent last year.

The cost of providing care for a 4-year-old increased by more than 4 percent.

Child Care Aware says in almost half of all states center-based care for one child cost more than rent, and in 35 states infant care is more expensive than in-state tuition at a four-year college.
