Childcare facilities and assistance for workingparents are widely advocated on demographic,economic, political and sociopsychological groundswhich are all scrutinised. Yet the provision inBritain, as documented in this article, remainsunsystematic, uneven and illadapted to the criteriaon which it is advocated. The relationship isexamined between the provision in the notforprofitsector with that in the private sector, financedby employees andor employers. Recent politicalpronouncements and manifestos on the topic arecritically compared. Future likely patterns ofchildcare provision in Britain are assessed, inparticular the potential industrial concentrationamong commercial childcare providers, thequestions of standards and financing, andinternational comparisons. The concluding themeis the implications for human resource managementpolicy makers of childcare as an employee benefitin changing labour markets.
