Transforming Childcare and Listening to Families : Policy in Wales and Beyond Paperback / softback
by Wendy Ball
This book draws on original research to consider the connections between childcare, family lives and social policy.
The research, located in Wales in the period following devolution, concerns the capacity of policy to enhance family well-being.
In interviews with mothers and fathers of young children, their day-to-day childcare arrangements are explored through the themes of gender, social networks, material circumstances and neighbourhood resources.
This material provides a basis for an assessment of policy through interviews with policy-makers.
The book identifies a significant gap between what matters to parents and what is currently being offered in policy and service provision
