Abstract Providing women that have children with employment and social insurance arrangements are the major tasks for the government. It’s important to assess which variant is preferable for the state: a part-time employed mother will take public childcare, or there will be necessary to expand commercial childcare, or funding of maternity leave and childcare subsidies should be increased.
