Childcare and family services and facilities

Childcare and family care are broadly based concepts covering the provision of public, private, individual or collective services to meet the needs of parents and children, or members of the immediate family.

All workers, irrespective of their sex, should have the possibility of combining paid employment with their responsibilities for children and other family members. Sufficient childcare and family services and facilities should be provided so that workers with family responsibilities can exercise their right to free choice of employment. These services and facilities should be flexible enough to meet the particular needs of children of different ages and of other family members requiring care. The use of such services and facilities should either be free of charge or set at a reasonable level in accordance with workers' ability to pay.

The competent authorities should collect and publish adequate statistics on the number of workers with family responsibilities engaged in or seeking employment, and on the number and ages of their children and of other dependants requiring care. They should ascertain the needs and preferences so revealed. The competent authorities should also promote the systematic development of an adequate and appropriate child and family care system.
