New report shows concerns with Calgary daycare costs

CALGARY (660 NEWS) – As Calgary’s economy continues to sputter, childcare costs have levelled off, but some disturbing trends are still present in the industry.
According to a childcare fees report authored by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Calgarians are paying between $1,000 and $1,100 per month depending on their kids’ age, which lands it in the middle of the pack of Canada’s largest cities.
The report also shows the number of daycare operators charging to put a child’s name on a waitlist.
