There is an obvious need for more, and better childcare.
We can debate all we like on here but that's not going to change a thing.
My idea is to collaborate solutions to the problem.
Let's all brain storm, then take solutions to our local members to action.
I'm happy to collaborate a document.

Offer grandparents and other relatives a care allowance or some type of CCR for looking after kids.
Ie my mother works FT but would love to have my kids during the week. Now if she could somehow be registered without ALL that crappy red tape and I'd be able to pay her and get CCB/CCR it would be great.
Another thing is 24hr daycare. I work shifts and have to continually knock back work if it isn't in 7am-5pm M-F.
Lastly - make nanny work CCR linked.

I totally agree with the grandparent idea...I have said that over and over... it would also take a strain off pension and the baby boomers retiring... My inlaws do it now for free but I would totally be in for them getting a rebate from the government and contributing to it...

Probably going to shout down for this one.
This is a general not aimed at any member.
Stop devaluing stay at home mums. They are often treated like scum of the earth who aren't contributing to society in any way. I believe more mums would stay home if it they were treated differently and valued for what they do. Therefore opening more place up to people who want to work.
The grandparent option is dying out with the stay at home mum. Let face it most modern grandma's work full time themselves.
Sorry I am not helpful.

What about incentivizing businesses to provide workplace-based care? Like making the cost of it a tax deduction.

Instead of increasing the salaries of child care workers (which will inevitably drive up fees), make their salaries tax free or heavily reduced tax. That means staff get more money in the pocket without centres or employers of nannies etc having to pay more.

Allow family daycarers to receive CCB/R for their own children or grandchildren. If the retirement age is now 70 then why couldn't a few grandparents band together to run a family daycare where they look after neighbourhood kids and get paid for it.
