dc.description.abstractThis small sample qualitative study explores the topic of child care within the city of Winnipeg, identifying the experiences of parents who are on waiting lists for licensed child care from a feminist perspective. Fourteen people from eight different family units were involved in the interview process. Results indicate great diversity in parents' child care needs. This research concludes that current child care availability within Winnipeg's licensed and non-licensed sector, is not meeting family needs. Policy implications include the need for more accessible child care options which allow for flexibility in delivery to meet the diversity of needs. A universal child care program providing enhanced availability through longer hours, weekends, and part time care would support the great variety of employment realities of many parents. The results of this research are valuable for those concerned with child care delivery.en_US
