Child Care Centres.
Australian Dept. of Labour and National Service, Melbourne. Women's Bureau.
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) in which Australian child care facilities are surveyed to include those providing full-day care and therefore excludes kindergartens, play centers, nursery schools, and child minding centers that provide care for only part of the day. The document presents a breakdown of married working women by State. It states that there were 555 child care centers in 1968-69 with an attendance of about 14,000 children. The legislation, regulations, and conditions to be observed in these centers vary from State to State and even within a State. These variations in conditions are briefly noted. The fees charged and the subsidies provided are also mentioned, as well as some of the organizational structures of the centers. (Author/GDB)
