In which, wealthy, countries would you find the best childcare in the world?
Based on a UNICEF study.
Overall best based on:
Leave: paid job-protected leave available to mothers and fathers in full-pay equivalent
Access: Children in formal childcare and education programmes (under 3 and one year before starting school)
Quality: Children-to-teacher ratio and minimal qualifications to become a teacher in formal childcare
Affordability: Cost of childcare for two children (two earners on average wage and a single parent of low earnings)
