Priced Out of Enrichment

For working parents, it often feels like a catch-22: the need for extra childcare arises because they have to work longer hours to make ends meet.

In this episode, we uncover the harsh reality of this cycle, where the demand for extended care services becomes a necessity rather than a choice.

Many parents find themselves stuck in this trap, where the need for additional support grows alongside their work commitments.

As we explore the challenges faced by families worldwide, from the USA to Canada and Dubai, we delve deeper into how this dynamic plays out in different contexts.

Our journey began with analyzing hundreds of clubs in the UK, where we witnessed firsthand the disparities in access and affordability.

Now, we’re expanding our exploration globally to gain insights into how families in other countries navigate similar challenges.

Through our observations and discussions with parents and experts, we aim to shed light on the complexities of balancing work and family life. By advocating for solutions that support working parents and their children, we hope to pave the way for a more equitable and supportive environment for families everywhere.
