Abstract

This chapter seeks to outline, critique and challenge Australia's current approach to the provision of education and care services to children and their families. In doing so, the chapter highlights the complexities and fragmentation of the current system so that advocates and policy makers might avoid the temptation to proffer simplistic solutions that fail to address the 'real world' contexts that families must negotiate and children are left to experience.
