This paper studies the relationship between parental employment and time with children in Spain. We find large differences across genders in basic primary and secondary childcare, but not in quality primary childcare. The analysis shows no significant differences in quality primary childcare across employment status. Furthermore, the results indicate that more educated parents allocate more time to primary care. The study also suggests that a work schedule that finishes no later than 6 pm would raise significantly the time allocated to childcare by working parents.
