The current child care supply is not sufficient to meet the anticipated demand. Parents are experiencing lack of childe care facilities while some providers are faced with a shortage of service users. This implies that there are not enough facilities that provide quality services. Accordingly, we need to consider not only the gross supply of child care but locally accessible child care services and the level of service quality as well.
This study looks at the supply and demand of childcare facilities, service quality and the users' satisfaction by facility type. The satisfaction survey was conducted on randomly selected 510 married adults who use child care facilities for their children. The results show that the total number of childcare facilities seems to be enough at the national level. However, there are variations in the supply at the regional level. Some regions are experiencing a shortage of supply while there is an oversupply for others. In this situation, to ensure equity of childcare services across the nation, the government should put more efforts to increase the number of public childcare facilities. (The rest is ommitted)
