Paying For Child Care

Paying for good child care can be a struggle.  In fact, child care is probably the second largest expense in your budget after rent or mortgage.  The average cost of child care in Hawaii is $640 per month.  This cost can vary depending on the age of the child, location, and type of care desired.
