Exploring the Role of Government Policies in Shaping Childcare Services

Childcare services refer to a range of facilities and care providers that offer supervision and support to children in the absence of their parents or guardians. These services are designed to ensure the safety, well-being, and development of children, typically in the age group from infants to school-aged youngsters. Childcare services encompass various settings, including daycare centers, in-home childcare, babysitting services, and after-school programs. They play a crucial role in assisting working parents by providing a secure environment where children can engage in age-appropriate activities, socialize, and receive essential care and attention.
