Georgia ranks among top ten states with most affordable child care for infants
According to a recent report by Child Care Aware of America, Georgia ranked eighth among states with the most affordable child care for infants placed in a center. This could prompt more young families to move to the state, possibly leading to a spike in demand for houses for sale in Atlanta.
The data compiled by Child Care Aware of America revealed that the average annual cost of infant care in Georgia was $7,030, with the state median income for a two-parent family at $74,939. The cost of care as a percentage of state median income for a two-parent family was 9.4 percent, lower than all but seven states. Mississippi led the way, with average families spending 7 percent of their annual income on putting infants in a child care center.
The findings from this report was in contrast to the data from another report recently released by Bundle, which stated that Atlanta ranked seventh among cities that spoiled their children the most. With low child care expenses, parents in Atlanta can afford to spend their money on other treats and toys for their kids.
