The article explores the frequency and intensity of childcare provided by grandparents. It uses the 2006/2007 SHARE data for 12 countries with a special focus on the Czech Republic. Past research usually distinguishes between the North-European model with high frequency and low intensity grand-parenting and the Southern-European model with low frequency and high intensity grand-parenting. This article shows that the Czech Republic – along with Germany and Austria – cannot be easily classified into these two broad patterns. Czech grandparents tend to participate in childcare with low frequency and low intensity, particularly in the case of children under 3 years of age. Low maternal labor force participation is used as an argument explaining this finding.
