What is the global childcare crisis?

The Crisis Globally

Millions of children around the world don’t get the care they need, and the problem exists in both the developed and developing worlds. The following statistics illustrate the problem.


The crisis in the United States

  • 35 percent of children live in single-parent families
  • 71 percent of mothers with children are in the labor force.
  • In the US, mothers often end up on waiting lists for daycares for months, and a third of families report difficulty finding care.
  • Infant care in the US is more expensive than college, and the cost of childcare is equal to 53 percent of the average median family income.
  • 61 percent of children under five spend at least part of their week in the care of somebody other than a parent.
  • 54 percent of low income families and 47 percent of above-average income families live in childcare deserts.
