Lori Swanson on Families & Children
Find options to make childcare affordable
There are at least 600K Minnesota families with a child age 12 or younger, many of whom rely on child care providers.� But the average annual cost of childcare at a center can be up to $16,000 per year.� Many middle-class and low-income families simply
cannot afford childcare.� We need to do better: We should consider common-sense licensure reforms to make it easier to start a childcare business and cheaper to operate one, while making sure to adequately protect children in the care of others.
