Childcare

Childcare enrolment rates for children aged 0-2 years include enrolment in formal arrangements such as childcare centres, registered child minders, as well as care provided by someone who is not a family member. Enrolment rates for children aged 3-5 years refer to those enrolled in formal pre-school services, and in some countries for children aged 4-5 years in primary schools.
