In PA, Day Care Costs More Than College
The Tribune-Review reports: “A national survey by student loan servicer Sallie Mae estimated that average prospective parents plan to save $38,953 in the 18 years before their child enters college. Four years of day care in Pennsylvania costs an average of $39,558.”
Ouch. The good news, if there is any, is that misery loves company. The cost of day care exceeds college in 31 states, overall.
