Do you Do Child Care for Love or Money?

For most family child care providers the answer is “Both!”

Family child care providers love children. It’s their number one motivating factor. But, earning money is also important.

Unfortunately, in our society we undervalue the work of providers. Federal and state governments drastically underfund the child care system. Many parents can’t afford the true cost of child care. As a result, providers are often forced to subsidize the system with low wages.
