New research shows why quality child care in Colorado is so expensive
A version of this story was originally published by KVNF.
A study released in January shows Colorado is one of the least affordable states for infant and toddler care. It was authored by Meg Franko, a researcher in early childhood policy, along with the Bell Policy Center in Denver.
Franko speaks to Gavin Dahl of KVNF Radio in Montrose about why the state is so expensive. Other discussion topics include the projected influx of federal dollars for early childhood education and creating a new cost-of-care model for Colorado.
