Akinnubi, Caroline Funmbi
World Journal of Education, v6 n3 p21-28 2016
This study examined the day caring methods among the civil servants of reproductive age with children between three months to four years in Lagos State Nigeria. The research design employed for this study was a descriptive research design. A total number of 212 teachers and 128 ministry workers making a total of 340 reproductive age mothers were purposively selected from the State. A self-structured questionnaire was used to collect information from the respondents. Accidental sampling technique was adapted to survey the respondents for this study. Data were analyzed using frequency distribution, simple percentages and inferential statistic of t-test analysis. The results of the study revealed that 30 (8.8%) teachers and 33 (9.7%) ministry workers agreed that they kept their child/children in crèche. The study showed that 188 (55.3%) teachers and 92 (27%) ministry workers agreed that they wanted to have time to care for themselves, while 204 (60%) teachers and 38 (11.2%) ministry workers agreed that they liked to get back to their work and be efficient. It was also revealed that a reasonable proportion of the teachers agreed that there were adequate personnel and adequate rooms for learning, while the ministry workers disagreed. The results further showed that many of the day care workers were not well educated. Based on the findings, it is recommended that the civil servants should be educated on the need to adopt the modern and educative methods of day care.
