The Many Faces of Child Care: Roles and Functions.
Sims, Margaret; Hutchins, Teresa
Australian Journal of Early Childhood, v21 n1 p21-26 Mar 1996
Investigated perceptions of child care staff and parents using child care services. Argues that early childhood care performs educational, cultural transmission, and child welfare functions, and that current debates limit the development of services that meet family and community needs. Urges new discourses that could facilitate more responsive and supportive administrative structures in children's services. (TM)
