In every state, child care can be hard to find, difficult to afford, and of mediocre quality.
State licensing standards vary greatly with few states meeting the most basic standards to ensure that children are safe and learning while in child care.
Go more in depth on issues in the child care environment through Child Care Aware® of America’s research, including papers on the barriers to early education for boys of color; access issues in child care deserts; and the high cost of child care.
