Cat Anderson a reporter from WTHR Channel 13 (NBC) was in our office today talking to our staff about the high cost of child care. The National Association of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (NACCRRA), of which our Child Care Answers program is a member, issued a 2010 update for their report Parents and the High Cost of Child Care. You can read the full report by clicking on the link.
What caught WTHR’s attention was that the agency report listed Indiana in the top ten states for least affordable center-based infant care. Anderson interviewed Day Nursery Executive Director Carolyn Dederer and Child Care Answers Program Director Mindy Bennett. The story is scheduled to run in the 5:00 pm news tonight.
