City Visions: The rising cost of childcare

Jul 29, 2019

  July 29, 2019: No where in the country is childcare more expensive than in San Francisco. This comes as no surprise to parents who can spend nearly $2,000 a month per child for full-time care, if of course there is a spot for the child, which oftentimes there is not. How are families coping with the rising cost of childcare in a region that is already so expensive? What resources are available for families in need?
