    Both of my children have done/will do 3 days a week at daycare by the age of three as I work part-time and they both love it and have thrived.

    I can definitely see the benefits of play based learning at that age and can understand why there is a societal benefit to encourage it to increase workforce participation. It should never be mandatory though as not all family situations or children are the same.

    I agree.
