Did you know that the average family spends $12,445 a year for child care? And depending on where you live or how many kids you have, that cost can go up even more. Sometimes, the stresses of providing quality care for our little ones seem never ending.
We’re trying to raise awareness of the high costs and stress providing child care has on families. That’s why we’ve just begun the Year of Care Giveaway—it’s a chance to win a year of child care for your family
If your family could use a little extra help with child care (and, honestly, who couldn’t nowadays?), just become a member of Care.com to enter the Year of Care Giveaway. Every new member from now through October 9th will be entered into the Year of Care Giveaway.
If you’re already a member of Care.com, you can still enter to win, too. Just visit your “My Account” page on Care.com and follow the easy instructions
We’ll select a winning family at random. The lucky family who wins will receive $12,445 (the average cost for a year of child care) to help cover the cost of babysitters, nannies, child care centers, au pairs, you name it
How would a year of free child care help your family? Does the average cost of child care surprise you? Let me know!
