JUST RELEASED: Child Care Aware of America's Parents and the High Cost 
of Child Care: 2014 Report and supporting materials, including a 
full-sized copy of the infographic below. Click here to download:

Eleven million children younger than age five are in some form of child 
care in the United States. The Parents and the High Cost of Child Care: 
2014 report summarizes the cost of child care across the country and 
represents the eighth year that Child Care Aware of America has 
published this data. Unfortunately, the picture for families has not 
improved in this time and child care remains one of the most 
significant expanses in a family budget. Child care often exceeds the 
cost of housing, college tuition, transportation or food. Unlike all 
other areas of education, including colleges and universities, families 
pay the majority of early education costs for young children. Because 
these costs come when parents are at the beginning of their careers, 
these significant expenses come at a time when families can least 
afford them.
