In 2015, the Government announced plans to double the amount of free childcare provided to some working parents. As preparations are made for this policy to be launched nationwide, this seminar will explore its possible impacts on maternal labour supply.
Dr Sarah Cattan will present new research on the impact of part-time vs. full-time free childcare on maternal labour supply, examining and comparing the impact of providing of free part-time education for all 3-year-olds and free full-time education for all 4-year-olds in England. This research is co-authored with Mike Brewer (ISER/IFS), Claire Crawford (Warwick/IFS) and Birgitta Rabe (ISER).
