Hello, As the election has been formally announced and is only a week or so away, our article Promises, Promises looks at what we need as parents from a child care perspective and what the various parties have to offer.

It's Father's Day on Sunday, so we have a Fathers' Day poem as well as a competition to tell us is your dad daggy, brilliant, fair weather or a dud dad

Promises, promises
Who's promising what this election and what do we actually need?

promisesThe Election date's set. The candidates are locked in. So what are the key issues in hand when it comes to childcare and working parents? What do we NEED, versus what are they promising?

The three key areas that need to be addressed are:

  1. AVAILABILITY: Addressing the lack of availability for all children, especially those under 2. Guarantee of child care for all working parents with children from 12 months.
  2. AFFORDABILITY: Making child care affordable for the average working parent
  3. QUALITY: Sorting out the issue of quality of child care, which really means, health & safety, care and nurturing and how to stop the massively high turnover of staff by making child care attractive to potential and existing carers.

Happy Father's Day

Fathers DaySome dads are useful round the house,

Some dads aren't quite so good.

Some dads know how to cook and clean,

Some don't do chores and food

Some dads are great fun all the time,

Some just like doing sport.

Some don't like doing much at all,

But will sub you when you're short.

Whatever sort of dad you have

You'll love them anyway.

So to all the dads around the world,

A Happy Fathers Day.
