Yes. It's a very fiscally responsible thing to do, as children who are in early childhood education help develop many skills early on, and become more capable later on in life, but it also helps advance gender equality within the workforce, as more women can go to work, and fill in labour gaps which can help ease a lot of the tensions, and labour shortages in our economy which will only grow in the coming years.

@986RT3Sfrom New York  answered…2mos

Yes but it should be paid by the government, not included in taxes.

@9864788from Vermont  answered…2mos

No, the responsibility of caring for a child should be on the shoulders of the parents of the children.

@97KVS78from Ontario  answered…3mos

Only if it's paid from the government themselves and not my own taxes. Otherwise, everyone shouldn't be forced to pay for other peoples children.

@96QP3KDfrom Ontario  answered…3mos

this is just a bandaid on the fact that corporations and capitalism care more about exess value then our lives. This should be a short term solution to the problem of a lack of a living wage

@93WL6VFfrom Ontario  answered…7mos

Yes but we should also provide more funding for mothers to stay home to look after their children.

@93QZV7Zfrom Ontario  answered…7mos

Yes, our children deserve to be looked and cared for in safe environments, and parents should not have to worry about affording it.

This would be cheaper if it were not nationalized as long as no monopolies in the market form

Do a tax credit or a payment instead because rural families can’t access the daycares

@8VK3V5Dfrom British Columbia  answered…1yr

It should be provided but only for both working parents or single parents. Stay at home parents shouldn’t be provided with national daycare.

@8VK33KSfrom Quebec  answered…1yr

It should be based on income and for workers only. No daycare should be possible for stay at home parents or welfare citizens. Or give access to these two groups but without subsidies.

@8VJ2V7Vfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

Yes, but only for low income families that have a low income due to no fault of their own

@8VHLQFBfrom Alberta  answered…1yr

I don't have children but it seems important to a lot of families. I think this is just a band aid. We need to strike a balance between earning potential and cost of living so families don't require a lot of unaffordable day care and can spend more time with their loved ones.

Yes as long as this does not mean less funding for day cares to make up for the parents reduced cost

@8V58MRJfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

Funding should be provided directly to low income or single parent families to allow for their choice in daycare.

@8V2X3T3from Quebec  answered…1yr

again, increase the cost of living and this scenario wouldn't be necessary

@8TYQGSCfrom British Columbia  answered…1yr

Only if its funded equally per person receiving. Quebec cannot reap the main benefits.

@Steeviemacfrom British Columbia  answered…1yr

Yes, but organized through the provinces with funding transfers from the federal government.

@8TX333Dfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

Yes, in addition to policies that allow families to truly choose if they want to return to work or stay at home to raise their children for a few years

@8TQD5PRfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

Yes, but similar to the educational system, there should be private and public daycares in which there is free childcare, but higher quality establishments for families who will pay for higher standards.

@8TNJXJKfrom Alberta  answered…2yrs

@8TJQYBBfrom British Columbia  answered…2yrs

No, rather provide free contraception and policies to promote having fewer children

All daycares should be either municipally-funded or privately-funded
