For a long time I was part of an intentional community (not cohousing) which required me to do child care based on my gender. In that case, a simple ratio (women to children) may have been enough. However, some adults do not perform very well with children. There are some who should be subtracted out of the equation, or included only as a fraction, not just because of work commitments, but also due to skill sets, preferences and life experiences. Childless by choice, I, for example, will never again put myself in a situation where I am required to do child care.
