Thinking outside the daycare
One thing that people overlook in this situation is home-based child care. They are more affordable than licensed child care because of lower overhead, but could provide great value as a lot of them are managed and operated by registered early childhood educators. Some home-based child-care providers are also licensed providers.
Why this idea won't work
The variance of quality in home-based care versus licensed child care is quite high. We need affordable licensed child care spaces for all children to have access too.
