Average cost of child care in CT as much as in-state tuition

WASHINGTON — Child care in Connecticut is of good quality and widely available, but it can easily cost more than in-state college tuition. A report released this week by Washington, D.C., think tank New America, determined the average cost of in-home, or “nanny care” in Connecticut was $31,162 a year and the average cost of a day care center was $11,456 per child per year.
