This booklet provides information on the use and cost of child care for preschoolers. Tables and charts provide data on: (1) child care arrangements used by employed mothers for preschoolers; (2) the weekly cost of preschool child care from 1986 to 1993; (3) the percent of arrangements for which payments are made; (4) regional differences in child care costs; (5) the percent of preschoolers of employed mothers in frequently paid for child care arrangements by family income; (6) the percent of families paying for child care by family income and poverty status; (7) the cost of child care for families by family income and poverty status; and (8) the percent of monthly family income spent on child care by family income and poverty status. The data indicate that a family with a preschool-age child spent an average of 64 dollars per week for child care in 1986 and 79 dollars per week in 1993, that economic status plays a major part in the choice of child care, and that child care is more of a burden for poor families than for middle class families, because they pay a larger share of their monthly income for child care. The document consists mainly of graphs and illustrations. Two tables are attached. (MDM)
