Accessible, affordable, and quality childcare helps parents return to work, improves children’s development, and promotes a more gender equitable society. Our new report 'Where Do Rich Countries Stand on Childcare?' ranks high-income countries based on their national childcare and parental leave policies. We find that childcare is inaccessible to many parents in the world's richest countries.
