Summary

Based on a survey of legislation relating to full-day care for preschool children of working mothers and a study of records, this report: (1) covers the number of registered child care centers in Australia and the number of children being served, (2) sets the conditions applying to registration of centers, (3) indicates the extent and levels of government subsidies, and (4) highlights regulations pertaining to center staffing. Textual information, which is augmented by data tables and maps illustrating location of subsidized and unsubsidized centers in metropolitan areas, is presented for each state and includes demographic characteristics of working mothers and their children, registration and regulations, subsidies, fees, and availability of the center. Some findings of the survey were: (1) In 1968-69 there were 555 centers with the capacity to provide full-day care for approximately 14,000 children, (2) Of the 555 centers, 40 centers serving 2,000 children received some form of government subsidy, and most of these centers catered to children from families with special needs, (3) Only two centers were operated by employers for the full-day care of their employees' children, and (4) The legislation, regulations, and conditions observed in the centers varied greatly from state to state and sometimes within a state. Other facilities providing care for preschool children and a table comparing child care center legislation are appended. (SB)
