Child care: An eight-year profile
« on: July 10, 2008, 11:54:36 AM »
Over the past eight years, the proportion of children in child care has increased significantly. This increase has been accompanied by shifts in the use of different types of care arrangements, according to a new report.

In 2002-2003, 54% of children aged six months to five years were in some form of child care, up from 42% in 1994-1995.

In 2002-2003, three forms of care (daycare centres, care outside the home by a non-relative, and care by a relative either inside or outside the home) each accounted for around 30% of all children in child care. The remaining small proportion consisted of children in care in their own home with a non-relative, such as a nanny, and in other forms of care such as nursery schools or preschools.
