Day-care Norwegian Style

Norwegian municipalities are required to provide day-care programs, before and after the regular school day, for children 6-9 years of age.

Unlike the proposed Canadian nationalized day-care program, Norwegian municipalities can decide for themselves how they wish to fund the day-care programs. Meaning, they can require parents to pay for 100% of the cost of the day-care or subsidize the programs with tax dollars.

The CTF opposes the Canadian nationalized day-care program, because it is subsidized by taxpayers, and advocates for greater parental choice.

here's a radical thought: give me back some of my tax dollars and I'll take care of my own kids' daycare. Why should I have my kids' daycare paid for by the tax payer?
