We argue that despite the assumption that there was a cohesive ideology of care during the communist regime, changes in ideologies, institutional settings and practices of childcare came about in Czechoslovakia in different decades. Reasons for post-1989 childcare in Czech society (and other postcommunist countries contradicting declination of male breadwinner) are rooted in past. Current development in Czech society strengthens misrecognition of care and class and gender bias in citizenship.
