Families often face high childcare costs and have challenges finding day care that fit their families’ needs and budgets. Policymakers should explore ways to make day care more plentiful and accessible by reducing government burdens that needlessly raise daycare operation costs, thus driving prices up for consumers and discouraging the creation of new facilities. Policymakers should also embrace tax policies that allow more families to keep the money that they earn and streamline government spending programs and tax benefits geared to families so that families have greater ability to face the costs associated with raising children.
