Child Care Affordability Calculator

In Delaware, raising a family with children is expensive. Whether or not a family can afford child care depends on their income remaining after paying basic household expenses.

The family calculator is a policy tool that allows users to select their county and, based on median income for that county, understand whether or not a family can access the licensed child care market after paying basic monthly expenses. For families who wish to see if they qualify for child care subsidy, please visit the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services, Division of Social Services web page.
