Arkansas one of 10 least affordable states for child care

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) - Parents in Arkansas pay for some of the most expensive child care in America.

Arkansas is among the top 10 least affordable states for before- and after-school care, and least affordable child care for a school-aged child in a center, according to a report from Child Care Aware of America.

The non-profit group said center-based child care costs rose an average of three percent nationwide.

The cost of child care is so high in some parts of the country, it's now more expensive than in-state tuition at state colleges.
