Tyler, TX — While the experience of raising a child may be priceless, the cost to provide care for them is getting to be more than most parents can afford.
According to a report from Child Care Aware of America Thursday, the annual cost of infant childcare increased roughly 2% last year. And the cost of providing care for a four-year-old increased by more than 4%.
For most parents, child care is by far their largest household expense. And the growing costs have put a tremendous strain on their budgets.
