In this photo taken Monday, Aug. 27, 2018, Rachel Lipsky walks with her daughters Azra Maidadi, left, and Naima Maidadi as they leave Azra’s preschool in Shoreline, Wash. Lipsky and her husband were already at a disadvantage when they started looking for child care while she was pregnant in 2012. The 38-year-old project manager discovered it wasn’t a problem they could solve with money, given they were in an already-expensive market that charges about $2,000 monthly per child. They eventually secured a spot for their girls, but the road to preschool was daunting, emotional, time-consuming and pricy. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
