Childcare costs on the rise

Posted: Updated:

The cost of childcare in Ohio is on the rise.A Dayton Daily News analyst found the cost for infant care is rivaling tuition at four-year colleges.

That can result in parents placing their children in lower-quality care centers.

In 2011, infant care centers cost Ohio parents almost $8,000 a year. That's according to an annual report from Childcare Aware of America.

Parents pay about $5,000 a year of kids old enough to be in school. Ohio ranks 11th in the nation in terms of childcare costs.
