Quote/Comment

Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, Appendix II, Supplementary Information on the Situation in Australia, P193-194 "Child-care standards a scandal, say experts" was the front-page headline to an article by Adele Horin in the Sydney Morning Herald of 11 Feb 1995. Horin reported how a former lecturer in child development "who used to tell her students that 'child care is fantastic' became more skeptical after visiting dozens of centres in the course of her work for Macquarie University", in Sydney, Australia.

...Her concerns included under-staffing, cross-infection, a lack of books, a lack of everyday conversation between infants and staff. With too few staff, language is just a means of controlling children, and staff become overstretched leading to burn-out and a high turnover rate.

...Horin was told that "it was almost impossible to get a prosecution even for flagrant breaches of regulations". Complaints to the Department of Community Services appeared to fall on deaf ears, and to close a centre was seen as a political act which the Department would be anxious to avoid.

Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, Appendix II, Supplementary Information on the Situation in Australia, P193-194 A government would be ill-advised to attempt to emulate nationally a most costly regime of early child care, which 80% of Swedes, who went further with this experiment than any other country, still don't believe is the best way to rear children under three. They believe, rather, that it is better for such children to be with their mothers.
