Cost of child care in Wyoming exceeds cost of college tuition

By The Associated Press Monday, May 08, 2006

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) -- The cost of sending a preschool age child to day care in Wyoming exceeds the cost of sending a student to college in the state, according to a recent report by a national group.

Parents of a 4-year-old in Wyoming pay an average of $5,438 for preschool care each year, according to the study titled "Breaking the Piggy Bank: Parents and the High Price of Child Care," from the National Association of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies.

At the University of Wyoming, meanwhile, a resident student taking 12 credit hours each semester would pay $2,208 in tuition, while a student paying out-of-state tuition would pay $7,320.

The study found that the cost of child care exceeded the cost of college in 42 states, including Wyoming.


So there you have it. The big factor which will prevent any meaningful growth or prosperity to come to our state.
