When shopping for early learning care, cost should not be the biggest factor. Instead, parents’ focus should be on the factors that have a lasting effect on happiness, development and long-term success. These include learning environment, nurturing relationships, positive teaching philosophy, policies and safety. As some of the proven indicators for foundational individual success, they should be analyzed fully by parents. (See Research Articles: Childhood Program Effectiveness)
Childcare is one of the largest expenses faced by families today. According to the NACCRRA 2010 report, in every region of the United States the average child care fees for an infant were higher than the average annual amount spent on food. Additionally, center-based child care fees for an infant exceeded average annual rent payments in 24 states. (http://www.naccrra.org/docs/Cost_Report_073010-final.pdf)
