Kids Count: Better early childhood education and care in Australia
Edited by Elizabeth Hill, Barbara Pocock and Alison Elliott
Demand for childcare has soared over the past decade as Australian families seek to reconcile work and care responsibilities. But the cost of care keeps rising, waiting lists in many metropolitan centres are long, and high quality services are not always available.
