Today's Parent Investigates the Childcare Needs of Canadian Parents

Monday, January 15, 2007
Today's Parent is taking an indepth look at the childcare needs of Canadian parents in its February issue (article also available online). Here's a brief excerpt from the press release, which describes the results of the study:
"Our national survey, answered by more than 5,000 parents, shows there is nothing simple about today's child care needs and that there are no easy solutions. Increasing numbers of families are finding it difficult to get, keep and pay for quality care. They're managing with a range of adaptations including heavy use of part-time care. More importantly, the wish list from parents goes well beyond the narrow choices offered by politicians. Also, there was surprising consensus between employed and stay-at-home parents as to what families really need."
