To say the least, I was extremely worried for what was going to happen. I couldn’t afford this, but staying at home wasn’t an option. Even the subsidized rates were high, and I knew I had a low chance of getting them.
I looked into other options including moving to where my parents live, so they could watch them, but it wasn't feasible for my job.
I was talking to one of my friends about this. She and her husband both worked, so they were in a similar situation where they couldn’t afford the child care, but they also couldn’t afford one of them not working.
I started researching about child care and found that its expensive price tag was a problem for practically everyone. Of course, it disproportionately burdens low-income families. I talked to parents and quickly saw that it was a problem that affected many families.
I found that some states partially fund preschools and some before and after school care programs are federally funded. It seemed unevenly distributed, but I was happy to see that there were already institutions in place that provided examples of cost-free child care.
After my research and talking with other parents, I came to that conclusion that both preschools and before and after school care would be cost-free to families.
