Child­care en­rol­ment rate

This indicator represents the ratio of children who are looked after in childcare centres or by nannies and the total number of children in a given age group.

It provides a way of assessing the quality of the infrastructure for families and for achieving a good work-life balance.

The full-time childcare enrolment rate measures the share of children who are looked after in day care facilities for at least seven hours on weekdays, whether in publicly subsidised day care, after-school clubs or all-day schools.

Care rates do not provide information about quality of care, whether there is a need for additional care, and if so how much.
