Beset by some of the nation’s highest child-care costs, Boston is creating an Office of Early Childhood to streamline the process for parents seeking affordable, high-quality options, Mayor Michelle Wu said Wednesday.

“We want to create a system where every single one of our little treasures is cared for,” Wu, 37, a progressive and the first woman elected mayor, told reporters outside the East Boston YMCA. “Affordably, near where is convenient to you,  whether that’s near work or whether that’s near home.”
