What To Look For In A High-Quality Preschool Program

Cost of Child Care Around the Country

When examining the cost of child care around the country, it becomes apparent that child care may not be feasible for many families. For example, the annual cost of infant care in one of the major cities in the United States, according to the Economic Policy Institute, can reach upwards of $23,000. To put this cost into perspective, the median annual cost of housing in the same major city is approximately $17,500. This means that “A minimum-wage worker… would need to work full time for 54 weeks, or from January to January of the following year, just to pay for child care for one infant.” Luckily, the cost of child care in Arizona is not nearly as drastic.

According to a recent study published by Child Care Aware, majority of families across the country reported their childcare costs to be between 10-12% of their annual income! Fortunately, Valley Child Care & Learning Centers is mindful of the financial strain learning centers can put on families, which is why we provide families with the peace of mind they deserve by listing all of our prices and included services directly on our website.

Affordable, Nutritional Food

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Eating a healthy breakfast is associated with improved cognitive function (especially memory), reduced absenteeism, and improved mood. Adequate hydration may also improve cognitive function in children and adolescents, which is important for learning.” We realize that nutrition is a key component to a child’s cognitive function and development, which is why we include daily breakfast, lunch, and a variety of snacks for your child, free of charge. We also make sure that all of our meals are in accordance with USDA requirements, and are both healthy and nutritious for your youngster.
