Nannies, Migration and Early Childhood Education and Care : An International Comparison of in-Home Childcare Policy and Practice

Elizabeth Adamson

This book presents new empirical research about in-home child care in Australia, the United Kingdom and Canada, three countries where governments are pursuing new ways to support the recruitment of in-home childcare workers through funding, regulation and migration. The compelling policy story that emerges illustrates the implications of different mechanisms for facilitating in-home childcare - for families and for care workers.
