KANSAS CITY, Mo. - President Obama announced a $1 billion investment in early childhood education on Wednesday.

A study by the Women’s Foundation and University of Missouri shows that more than one in four Missouri counties lack accredited child care centers.

Sosha Bronston, a single, working mother, is finally making ends meet. She said it’s only because she’s no longer paying more for child care than her monthly rent.
