When it comes to childcare, where do Conservatives, Labour and Liberal Democrats stand?
Boris Johnson is poised to make a huge offer to families in his Tory election manifesto, by promising more free child care for parents.
As first revealed by The Sun on Sunday, a promise to give out more help for working families is sure to go down well with swing voters as the PM launched his campaign last month.
The PM is looking at ways to give extra support to parents with pre-school children, The Daily Mail reports.
One option is to give all two-year-olds several hours of free childcare too.
Another proposal would be to give an extra ten weeks of free childcare for three and four-year-olds.
At the moment two-year-oldsget 15 hours of free help per week, but that goes up to 30 hours a week when a child is three if the parents are in work.
Labour has not confirmed when it will publish its manifesto, but is expected to do so next week.
The party has previously said it wants to abolish every private school in England and force them to sell their playing fields.
Private schools will lose their multi-billion pound tax breaks and be ordered to sell off their buildings under the radical plans.
As part of their shake-up of education, Labour are also vowing to scrapOfstedandSATs testsfor primary school kids and to slash classroom sizes.
Mr Corbyn said: I see education like an escalator running alongside you throughout life, that you can get on and off whenever you want.

The Liberal Democrats
Lib Dems’ key policies include 35 hours per week of free childcare from nine months and the recruitment of 20,000 more teachers as part of a 10bn-a-year investment in schools.
They also wanted to improve access to lifelong learning by making available 10,000 to every adult to be spent on skills and training.
Jo Swinson plans to triple the funding for early years pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to 1,000.
The Lib Dem boss also wants to give teachers a pay rise in line with inflation and inject cash into a scheme that will boost teachers professional development.
