Childcare prices in local areas: Initial findings from the National Database of Childcare Prices


In this brief, we summarize initial findings from the NDCP. We provide estimates of childcare prices at the county level by children’s age groups and care setting (home-based or center-based providers). Prices reflect the market rate parents would pay per year for full-time care as defined by the state for one child without public subsidies. Childcare prices are presented for the most recent year of data collection, 2018, as well as adjusted for inflation to 2022 real dollars. (author abstract)
