After-school care


Introduction of 12-1 pupil/teacher ratio for after-school providers to increase costs by up to 40% for the unsubsidized.

However the latest figures for pupil/teacher ratio in schools is 15.3/1 for primary and 13.1/1 for post primary.


Kids whisked off to childcare from a young at often roused out of bed before 7am then put into after school care when they are older. All in the name of progress and paying off jumbo mortgages and rents.

Are kids not allowed a childhood anymore? Maybe there should be a limit on how many hours a day a child is in non parental care? Otherwise whats the point in having kids if merely they were share a roof to sleep under
