Last week saw a protest by childcare providers outside Leinster House over chronic underfunding in the sector. Everyone knows we need a serious overhaul of how our society looks after children, but can we just make childcare tax-deductible in this year’s budget and end the fee freeze notion? And if not, why not?

I’m tired of complaining about the cost of childcare. Every parent is.
