Government setting up a commission to review childcare options

The Government is setting up a commission to ascertain how childcare  can be made more accessible and affordable:
 
Recommendations are  that schools across the UK will provide 'wrap around care' in some cases until 8pm. Nannies and childminders will have less 'paperwork to complete and may be able to care for more children than current legislation allows.
 
The aim is to provide more affordable childcare to reduce the financial pressure on working parents that often spend a third of their income on childcare.
 
The debate is whether this is a positive or negative opportunity for parents. Will it enable families to enjoy the benefits of a higher family income and a better standard of living? or are we are becoming a nation where our children are cared for outside the family home and is does this negatively  impact children and the family unit?
