Florida has above-average rates for school-aged child care

Florida ranked 13th among states with the most affordable child care for school-aged children in a center, according to a recent report released by Child Care Aware of America. For young parents looking for a good location to raise their families, the aforementioned ranking should lead them to consider houses for sale in Orlando.

The survey ranked the states by cost of care as a percentage of the state median income for a two-parent family. The data from the report revealed that the average annual cost of school-aged care in the state was $3,677, while the state median income for a two-parent family was $71,051. This amounted to a percentage change of 5.2 percent, placing the state as the 13th most affordable state for such child care. Several states - Minnesota, North Carolina, Texas, West Virginia, North Dakota and Idaho - were not included in the rankings.

According to My Fox Orlando, there are numerous options for school-age care in the city, each with their own sets of advantages and disadvantages. Some kids may enjoy the slow pace and cozy environments of a family day care home, while others may prefer the social opportunities of an after-school program.
