Libertarian Solutions: Do we need federal childcare?

Everybody knows there is a child care crisis -- and that there aren't enough preschools and day care centers to hold all of the children lining up to get in. Right?  Wrong. As frequently occurs, what "everybody knows" is what everybody has been told. It often transpires that we have all been given the same faulty information. 
Advocates of government-run child care say private child care is too expensive for many people, that a shortage of day care centers drives the cost up. They say it's a taxpayer responsibility to provide early childhood education and day care for all families who need it, and that most families with children need the help. 
The truth is that this is a manufactured crisis that primarily exists in the minds of politicians.
...The point is that there is plenty of room in day care centers for children whose parents want to put them there. However, relatively few parents actually want to do so.
...(Census data show) the vast majority of children were cared for at home, with family members. Clearly, millions of Americans simply don't want to send their kids off to day-care centers, the claims of politicians notwithstanding.

But Americans haven't demanded free or government-sponsored child care.
Some have, to be sure: They're called socialists, and they're dedicated to giving you child care and forcing you to pay for it whether you want it or not.
Don't believe this constitutes socialism? Look at the platform of the Socialist Party USA. "We support the expansion and full funding of 24-hour child care facilities..."
And it goes on from there: The platform of the Democratic Socialists of America includes providing free 24-hour child care.

That's yet another fallacy: Children who go to preschool programs -- government sponsored or not -- have no long-lasting advantage over children whose first school experience is kindergarten.
...Toss the program; it doesn't work.
Preschool programs provide no lasting benefits; people don't want to put their children in preschool or day care in the first place, especially not a government-run program; and the people who run government preschool programs say they don't work.
...The solution, then, is to keep our government out of the child care business, period. Few are actually demanding it, and even those who run it say it was a failed experiment.

What Can We Learn from Quebec’s Universal
Childcare Program?

By Michael Baker, Jonathan Gruber and Kevin Milligan, www.cdhowe.org/pdf/ebrief_25_english.pdf
1-Feb-06
Our study (conducted by Statistics Canada) is based on data drawn from the National Longitudinal Study of
Children and Youth.
...Several measures we looked at suggest that children were worse off in the years following the introduction of the universal childcare program. We studied a wide range of measures of child well-being, from anxiety and hyperactivity to social and motor skills. For almost every measure, we find that the increased use of childcare was associated with a decrease in their well-being relative to other children. For example, reported fighting and other measures of aggressive behaviour increased substantially.
