This chapter discusses public childcare and early education services as well as out‐of‐school‐hours care. It describes past policy trends and current drivers of public investment in childcare. The chapter then provides an overview of formal public childcare and early education supports, including funding mechanisms, and discusses provision of early years' services across OECD countries, before different aspects of quality and out‐of‐school‐hours care services are considered. Before concluding, the chapter examines parental childcare fees and whether work pays after taking into account the cost of childcare.
