Welcome to Paula Bennett's mega babyfarm nightmare
So here's the great plan. Babyfarms. New legislation has allowed the Government to vastly expand minimum level childcare centers from about 50 kids to 150 while lowering the age so 1 year olds can be included as part of the force-solo-mothers-back-to-work-when-infant-turns-one-draconian-crippling-of-the-Welfare-State-bennie-bash.
Which raises a very good question, in light of Dr Gluckman's research (which disappointingly seems to be utterly ignored by National) pointing out how crucial those early years are a child's development, shouldn't a 1 year old be with one of the parents rather than a lowest cost babyfarm?
Will we see a sudden rise in these types of cases under the Paula Bennett's mega babyfarm nightmare?
Drugs, abuse among child-centre complaints
Early childhood education staff taking drugs and abusing children make up some of the 237 complaints brought against ECE services last year. Of the complaints, the worst include "sexualised play", a 21-month-old child choking on a crayon and requiring CPR without the mother knowing, and a centre owner allegedly smoking P. Of these complaints, 23 were not upheld.
1 year olds should be with a parent for bonding purposes, they should not be handed over to cheaply run babyfarms.
This road goes only to madness.
