BEING A PARENT and being a worker means spending money on childcare.

The State is trying to help with this, by introducing schemes such as giving €20 per week towards the cost of childcare.

But with 3,000 mothers – at last count – leaving the workforce annually due to the excessive costs of childcare, for some people the costs are too much.

What do you think: Does the State do enough to help parents with childcare costs?


Poll Results:

No (6663)
Yes (1606)
