How affordable is early childhood education and care?

Methods and results from a unique family-specific measure of affordability

Dr Gordon Cleveland is an Economist in the Department of Management, at the University of Toronto at Scarborough and, a Senior Research Fellow in the Graduate School of Education at the University of Melbourne. His role as a Partner Investigator on the E4Kids Longitudinal Study is principally to address questions of the economics of ECEC provision.

With colleagues, Dr Gordon Cleveland, developed two ways of measuring affordability across a population. This talk will describe how to measure the affordability of child care using Canadian data. Dr Cleveland will show the results of three policy simulations and how these policies would affect the affordability of child care.
