Stay-at-home parents creching the daycare party

Working families are struggling to find childcare, as new research reveals a third of stay-at-home parents send their kids to daycare.

The Australian Institute of Family Studies has found that only two-thirds of parents use daycare for work-related reasons.

One in 10 families uses taxpayer-subsidised childcare to “give the parent a break’’ and nearly one in four sends children to daycare for education and socialisation.
