  • 2014 Child Care Market Price Study

    The 2014 Oregon Market Price Study identifies child care prices and the geographic distribution of these prices across the state. Prices vary by several factors including the age of the child served, type of care, the local supply and demand for child care, and facilities’ perceptions of the capacity of families to pay for care. The 2014 Oregon Market Price Study examines geographic patterns in the prices charged by facilities by age of child served, type of care, and pricing modes (hourly, monthly, daily, weekly). This study fulfills the federal requirement that the state complete a market price survey every two years.
