Child Care is Expensive!
It shouldn’t be the only factor in your decision, but for many families, cost of care is an important factor in choosing care. Costs can vary dramatically due to location, size of the program, the age of the child, and the resources made available for the children and staff – among other factors.
Many programs offer sliding scale fees, and there are several financial support options available to Central Indiana families, such as Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) vouchers, On My Way Pre-K and Head Start/Early Head Start. Keep these programs in mind as you conduct your search and consider your budget.
