About this item

In recent years, changes in the labor market, including an increase in the number of young working mothers, has led to a rapid growth of employment for nannies throughout the Western world. That rapid growth, however, has come with an increase in long, non-standard working hours and in the context of a lack of regulation or of affordable, flexible solutions to the demand for early childhood education and care. This book offers empirical research and comparative analysis of in-home child care in Australia, the United Kingdom, and Canada, three nations where governments are actively recruiting migrant workers as an affordable child care solution, showing how in-home child care is ultimately, if indirectly, supported by government early child care policy and migration policy.
