Daycares in the area, are just as expensive and the children cannot start school until age 5. This article speaks of the median wage being $23,400 annually.

Lastly, I thought of the topic of private individual childcare services from websites such as care.com and comparing and contrasting them with facilities such as Kindercare, Apple Daycare, The Goddard School and home child care services.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
