It is therefore important to understand the impact of these services and to ensure their quality and accessibility. The series of policy analyses carried out by the OECD Education Directorate from show that the organization of early childhood systems is extremely varied across the rich countries. Yet, distinctive patterns of governance emerge from this diversity.
Child care , otherwise known as day care , is the care and supervision of a child or multiple children at a time, whose ages range from two weeks to twenty years. Child care is a broad topic that covers a wide spectrum of professionals, institutions, contexts, activities, and social and cultural conventions.
Early child care is an equally important and often overlooked component of child development. Care facilitated by similar-aged children covers a variety of developmental and psychological effects in both caregivers and charge. This is due to their mental development being in a particular case of not being able to progress as it should be at their age.
Another form of childcare that is on the rise in contrast to familial caregiving is that of center-based child care. In lieu of familial care giving, these responsibilities may be given to paid caretakers, orphanages or foster homes to provide care, housing, and schooling.
The majority of child care institutions that are available require that child care providers to have extensive training in first aid and be CPR certified. In addition, background checks , drug testing at all centers, and reference verification are normally a requirement. Child care can consist of advanced learning environments that include early childhood education or elementary education.
Childcare varies dramatically across cultures. While many global communities prefer children aged 7—10 for designated caregiving responsibilities, children no younger than 12 are preferred in the Western world where paid childcare is common. An important aspect that many center-based child cares have been trying to implement into their mission statement and everyday routine has been of being aware of the multiple cultures they will be dealing with. This was seen as being important because of the growing numbers of families considering and seeking childcare.
This must be done to understand the overall diversity of the community. This is of great importance because it adds to their mental development and their understanding of the world. Australia has a large child care industry,  but in many locations especially in inner-city suburbs of large cities and in rural areas the availability is limited and the waiting periods can be up to several years.
Regulation is governed by the ACECQA,  a federal government body, which acts as a central body for the state bodies. All childcare workers must have, or be undertaking, the minimum "Certificate III in Children's Services" in order to work in a centre Recognition of Prior Learning is available to help qualify staff with many years experience, but no qualifications. Rules differ between states regarding family day care in Australia. Additionally, Current Police check, Current First Aid training, Insurance specifically for family day care is necessary for starting a family day care.
The house should be safe for children. A group of 15 educators works under one Supervisor who must have a "Diploma in Children's Services". Canada offers both private and subsidized daycare centers. Some shortages of subsidized openings can lengthen the time needed to find a suitable childcare provider. To counter this, government or private enterprise sometimes enable parents to look for available spaces online.
A article in The Star said that not-for-profits are much more likely to produce the high quality environments in which children thrive.
For all providers, the largest expense is labor. Local legislation may regulate the operation of daycare centers, affecting staffing requirements. Some jurisdictions require licensing or certification. Legislation may specify details of the physical facilities washroom, eating, sleeping, lighting levels, etc. In Denmark day-cares accept children ranging from 6 months old to 3 years old. Most of these are managed by a municipality and mostly government funded.
The different types of institutions ranges from separate day-care institutions Vuggestue , kindergartens with a day-care department Integrerede institutioner and in-home day-care Dagpleje. The day-cares are play-based focusing on the children's perspective and involvement in day-to-day life. Childcare systems in France put great value into childcare providers having received a certain level of formal education in order to properly care for children.
They have two separate branches of early childhood childcare. They both require teachers to have a college degree with an occasional specialized degree on top of that. Children in their last Kindergarten year may be grouped into a Vorschule "preschool" and given special pedagogic attention; special preschool institutions comparable to the US-American kindergarten are the exception. Kitas are typically run by public i. In this case, the care is open to the general public—e.
Preschool education, unlike school and university, is not in the exclusive domain of the states. The federal government regulates daycare through the Kinder- und Jugendhilfegesetz KJHG , which stipulates a legal claim to daycare:.
This form of daycare is also federally regulated through the KJHG. Non-academic personnel in daycare facilities have usually attended specialized schools for several years. In the state of Bavaria for example, daycare assistants Kinderpfleger will have attended school for two years, daycare teachers Erzieher for three years with an additional two-year internship. India has a system of universal childcare which is free and provided by the state through the Integrated Child Development Services.
It provides food, preschool education, primary healthcare , immunization, contraceptive counselling, health check-up and referral services to children under 6 years of age and their mothers.
Also, though it has widespread coverage, operational gaps mean that service delivery is not consistent in quality and quantity across the country. Licensed childcare in Japan falls under the jurisdiction of Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare , but each licensed daycare facilities are run by private or public organizations, which are licensed and inspected by the local prefectural , ordinance city , or core city governments.
Japan has a universal childcare system and childcare is free or relatively affordable as the national government provides subsidies and a framework for working families. Licensed childcare for ages 3 to 5 is free for a single-parent or when both parents are working.
The national government only covers the cost of core childcare program and does not cover the cost of transportation, special activities, meals or snacks, although meals and snacks are partially covered for low-income households. Parents apply to licensed childcare in Japan through a single point of access by visiting their local municipal government, which handles all the payments and manages the master waiting list for the neighbourhood.
The waiting list is not on a first-come, first-served basis but rather a priority list based on the points system. A child from single-parent families, parents with illness or disabilities and low-income households are typically prioritized over children from other households.
Because of the popularity for licensed childcare and the increasing number of women in the workforce, many children are placed on a waiting list. As of April , Okinawa had the highest percentage of children on the waitlist at 2. Although unlicensed childcare and babysitters are also eligible for government subsidies, a parent must apply with local municipal government for funding and the maximum funding is capped at 37, yen per month.
In Mexico , President Felipe Calderon Hinojosa created a Social Program named "Programa de Estancias Infantiles" that included more than 8, daycare spaces for children between 1 and 3. This program subsidizes mothers that work and study and also single fathers in a vulnerable situation. It has a great success having more than , children over the country. Childcare has been on the rise in Mexico due to the increasing interest it has within the people and the effect it has on the government.
This is due to the rise of urban areas in developing countries and the need to keep up with the economic development. The creation of childcare programs in Mexico is quite different from others because it focuses on the "defeminization of labor and the defamilization of care. The first would be in the s when the Institute for Social Security focuses on covering children for mothers who were covered by Social Security services.
The second stage would be in the early s when the Ministry of Public education made preschool mandatory for all children from ages 3 to 5. The last stage would be in when the Ministry of Social Development created a childcare program in which was focuses on helping out children and mothers who were not covered by the social security services.
For families to be eligible for this service the mothers had to be working or searching for a job, the income was taken into consideration in comparison to that of minimum wage, and that they did not have any other access to services.
The program that was created in became known as the Federal Daycare Programme for Working Mothers. The one running the care centers would only have to have a training component, which consisted of a psychological test and training courses to understand the principles of childcare, before being able to open their business in which they would be given money to furnish the facility as necessary for a safe caring center to be created.
Many children in Norway start daycare between 10 months and 3 years old. The government guarantees daycare for all children that are at least 1 year old by 1 August. There's a maximum price to enable all families to afford it. Adult-infant ratios are about first year and second year. Care for children under five is split into Childcare on Domestic Premises which is Childminding and Daycare. In the UK being a 'Childminder' is a protected title and can only be used by registered professionals.
Registered Childminders are trained, insured and qualified in Pediatric First Aid. They generally work from their own homes and are always self-employed setting their own terms and conditions.
The basic numbers of children that childminders can care for is 6 children under 8 years of age; of these children, 3 may be under 5 and of these 1 may be under 1. These numbers include the childminder's own children although the childminder's children will not be included in the childminding 'certificate'. Some childminders work with either childminding assistants or with co-childminders, which often increases the number of children that can be cared for and individual childminders can request a 'variation' which may increase the children that they care for particularly for 'continuity of care' or for twins.
London has greater pressures on childcare provision than other English regions. A recent study by London's Poverty Profile found the level of childcare provision in London is lower than the England average. In London, there are 4. Childcare costs in London significantly hinder the living standards of the capital's residents.
The significantly higher costs of childcare influences this heavily, along with housing and transport. The UK has a wide range of childcare options, including childminders , day nurseries, playgroups and pre-school education at school. Childcare is primarily funded by parents, however the Single Funding Formula pre-school funding can be used at some day nurseries, playgroups and schools for a maximum of 5 sessions per week, after a child reaches 3 years.
The government introduced a childcare allowance vouchers by which employers could make payments for childcare, prior to tax, on employees' wages. In Scotland Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education is responsible for improving care and education for children from birth to age eighteen. This is implemented by inspections carried out by HMIE itself or by other members of inspection and review teams.
Inspection reports include feedback from staff and parents as well as the inspectors, aiming to provide parents and carers information to help them decide whether a particular child care setting is providing good quality child care and meeting government standards. In spite of some federal child care subsidies for low-income families, in most states child care represents the biggest expense for families with young children, even more than housing and food.
The costs of child care has increased over the years, and putting a "tremendous strain" on household budgets, in particularly for those with two children or more. According to one journal article more than one half of the children in the United States attended childcare facilities. This number has increased as the number of working parents has increased.
The increase in the number of children that are required to have some sort of childcare service has made childcare facilities more necessary than they have ever been. State legislation may regulate the number and ages of children allowed before the home is considered an official daycare program and subject to more stringent safety regulations.

The program is designed to help low-income students from low-performing school districts to meet state and local standards in core academic subjects. Accessibility Refers to the availability of child care when and where a family needs it. Accommodation Refers to adjustments or adaptations made in standards and assessment tools to allow children with Special Needs or English-Language Learners to demonstrate their knowledge and skills. Accommodations help provide children with equal access to education by meeting the child's individual learning needs and capabilities For example, a test could be adapted for a child with attention issues by granting extra time or could be administered to a non-English speaker in the child's native language. Accommodation addresses how the child is expected to learn and demonstrate learning, not what a child is expected to learn. Compare with: Modification.

Прекрасное место для смерти, - подумал Халохот. - Надеюсь, удача не оставит. Беккер опустился на колени на холодный каменный пол и низко наклонил голову. Человек, сидевший рядом, посмотрел на него в недоумении: так не принято было вести себя в храме Божьем. - Enferno, - извиняясь, сказал Беккер.
Ее белая блузка промокла насквозь и прилипла к телу. Было темно.
