HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -- Parents know childcare is expensive, and there are new numbers that really drive that point home.
The "Economic Policy Institute" found the average annual cost of infant care in Connecticut is $15,500.
That breaks down to $1,292 per month.
Connecticut is ranked as the fifth most expensive state for childcare.
The study also said infant care in Connecticut costs $3,146 more “per year than in-state tuition for four-year public college.”
That makes it one of 33 states and Washington D.C. where infant care is more expensive than college.
