    Abstract

    The changing shape of the family and of women's role in society, together with an increased economic necessity to participate in paid work has meant that child care has become one of the biggest issues for Australian families and social policy makers today. An increasing proportion of mothers entering the workforce has been associated with a parallel increase in the need for nonparental child care. Child care in the shape of informal and formal care aims to fill this gap.
