Cost of Childcare

According to the report by Center For American Progress, Tennesseans are paying 17% of their summer income to provide childcare for their children while parents work. For many Tennesseans, this cost can cause significant financial strain. We need to find ways to cut the cost of childcare in our state. We can assist nonprofits that base cost on the financial standing of each family. We can also open our schools for summer programs. This will provide summer employment for some teachers, lift the financial burdens of many families, and ensure our students are continuing to participate in educational activities during the summer months.
