Child Care News for Parents & Carers
February 15, 2017
Welcome, this week everything you need to know about outside school hours care, including what to do if you missed out on a spot in your chosen service, and a contribution from the Founder of Femeconomy Alanna Bastin-Byrne on the importance of supporting companies with female leaders.
The lowdown on Before and After School Care
Leaving child care and heading off to big school is a milestone in so many ways; for children it is a gateway to increased independence and for parents it means no more child care fees.

However, for working parents there is the dilemma of what to do with the kids before and after school. With a shortage of outside school hour (OSH) places in most of our big cities, it is not safe to assume that because your child is starting school they will automatically have a spot in their local service so it's important to be organised.
Help our daughters access the same opportunities as our sons
I am a mother of two young children, a four year old girl and a two year old boy. I want my children to live in a world where they are paid the same, they can work in which ever industry they choose and above all, they are safe. Unfortunately, this won't be the case for another 170 years in Australia.

The World Economic Forum recently reported that Australia has slid from 36th place in 2015, to 46th place in 2016 on the Global Gender Gap Index. Rwanda, The Philippines and Nicaragua are all in the top 10. As a sporting nation, I know we love a leader board and we don't like to be beaten at anything.
