Childcare affordability pilot schemes: evaluation summary

Evaluation of 3 childcare affordability pilots.



The 3 childcare affordability pilots (CAP09) tested the effect of providing more generous childcare-related tax credits to parents not already in work or accessing childcare.

The main objective of the pilots was to test whether the affordability of childcare is a barrier to employment and formal childcare.
