Did you know that only 20% of kids have access to quality, licenced childcare (i.e. daycare centers). There are home daycares available but you have to be careful with these as they do not have the same standards as daycare centers.
Waiting lists in Regina for infant spots range from 200-300. The length of these lists gets shorter as the child gets older.
Parents only get 12 months, maximum of maternity leave. However, infant spots (0-18 months) are the hardest to get. If the government wants people to go back to work at 12 months, they need to find some way to make these spots available, not to mention cheaper. Cost will be another topic.
