The provision of childcare services - A comparative review of 30 European countries

The availability of adequate childcare services is a growing concern for citizens across Europe. Better childcare services can help boost labour market participation and gender equality while also working to reverse declining fertility rates by reducing the cost of childbearing in terms of career opportunities. This report examines the situation of childcare across the European Union including the extend to which demand is met, the importance attached to childcare and national childcare policies. This publication is available in printed format in English with French and German summaries.
