Child Care News for Parents & Carers
August 23, 2017
Welcome, if your child is starting primary school in 2018 and you need before and after school care, now is the time to take action. Also, how you can take action to burst gender stereotypes in your family, it's never too early to start.
Booking Out of School Hours Care (OSHC)
For those heading to 'big' school next year, preparations are probably already well underway. You’ve probably gone through the school readiness information, enrolled in a school, some super-keen Kindy kids might have already picked out their lunchbox.

However, one of the often-overlooked things in the lead up to school is organising any Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) that might be required.

OSHC or 'before and after school care' places can fill up fast, leaving many working families high and dry for this essential service. Because of this, many services recommend securing your place as a priority.
Breaking gender stereotypes starts with young children
A recent report from Our Watch has reinforced that early childhood is the ideal window in which to challenge the negative impacts of rigid gender roles and stereotypes, placing the power to breakdown outdated views in the hands of the parents.

The Power of Parents Snapshot Report surveyed 858 parents and found that most parents are in favour of making a positive change, finding that 72 per cent of parents want to challenge traditional stereotypes in their young children, and 92 per cent of parents agreed that it is important to treat girls and boys the same in their early years.
