Large-chain child care: What can we learn from the Australian child care experience?

Printer-friendly version
The Child Care Advocacy Association of Canada and the New Brunswick Advisory Council on the Status of Women present a &quot;lunch and learn&quot; session with Lynne Wannan, Chair of the Australian Association of Community Based Children's Services.<return><return>

Location

Wilmot United Church
473 King St.
Fredericton
Canada

Description:

The face of Australian centre-based child care has changed dramatically over the past 10 years, going from community-based or small independent operators, similar to what is available in New Brunswick, to services delivered commercially by large corporations. Australia's commercial child care is now dominated by publicly listed corporations with obligations to return profits to shareholders. This has been detrimental to both independent and non-profit child care providers and public funding of child care services is subsidizing profits for the burgeoning commercial child care industry.

This session will feature:

Lynne Wannan, Chair of the Australian Association of Community Based Children's Services; Member, Children's Services Reference Group advising the Australian Minister for Children; and Chair of the State of Victoria's Children's Council.

Jody Dallaire, Child Care Advocacy Association of Canada (NB representative)

Linda Gould, President, Early Childhood Care & Education New Brunswick
