CUPE fights private daycare
, , The Toronto Star (Canada), 29-Oct-2007
Groves, nicknamed Fast Eddy by the Australian media, has grown fabulously wealthy as his Australia-based ABC Learning Centres experienced a meteoric rise during the past decade to become the largest daycare operator in the world.
...The central complaint against the 41-year-old entrepreneur that he milks government child care subsidy programs for personal profit is also the source of his financial success.
ABC Learning Centres has aggressively expanded into jurisdictions where governments provide generous payouts to offset child care costs. Tens of millions of those public dollars have contributed to ABC profits, which rose 150 per cent last year alone to more than $70 million.
From Australia to New Zealand, the U.K. to the U.S., the formula has made Groves one of Australia's richest people, wealthier even than Hollywood star Nicole Kidman.

...Australian news reports say about 40 per cent of ABC's revenue comes from government subsidies.

Flexi-hours and longer maternity leave: A triumph for feminism? Anything but!
Sue Reid, The Daily Mail (UK),
21-Nov-2007
For the past 30 years, generations of children have been parted from their mothers and brought up in state nurseries - with serious consequences (in Sweden).

Suicides are a rising problem among teenagers. Depression is widespread among girls.
The results in secondary schools, once the envy of the world, have dropped dismally low.
Official statistics show that the psychological well-being of young Swedes has deteriorated faster than in 11 other Western countries during the past two decades.
In 1970, the reading levels of ten year old Swedes were the best in the world.
But today, they have slipped to 15th in global rankings.

Jonas Himmelstrand, an expert on special needs education, blames a social policy that separates babies from their mothers.
He says children who are brought up at home are calmer and easier to teach. Even as adults, those raised in nurseries have a more difficult time concentrating.

Flexi-hours and longer maternity leave: A triumph for feminism? Anything but!
Sue Reid, The Daily Mail (UK),
21-Nov-2007
Therese Murphy's experience of (Swedish) state-run childcare makes her feel that the children themselves also suffer.
A trained nurse, she has helped out occasionally at nurseries. She says she has seen babies handed over by their weeping mothers at the doors at 7am before work.

Worse, she has seen toddlers screaming as their parents walk away.
"We were told to tell the mothers that their children stopped crying when they left.
"But the reality is that some didn't stop crying for nearly three weeks, when they gave up hope.

"For the child, a state nursery is nothing like home. The routine is fixed. These are not relaxed and fun places to spend your childhood.
