A new study has been done by the group Child Care Aware of America and it finds when all states are surveyed Michigan's day care costs are among the highest.

The average yearly expense to put a youngster in day care in the state is about $10,000 a year.  That ranks Michigan number twelve.

For those in preschool care, the cost per year is around $8,000.  In that category Michigan ranks seventeenth in overall expense.
