Greens urge Aussie parents to share child care stories

PARENTS are being invited to share their stories about dealing with Australia's child care system.

The Greens have continued their push for reform of the child care sector by launching a national online survey today.

Greens childcare spokeswoman Sarah Hanson-Young said consulting parents was a necessary step in the reform process.

"We want to hear what mums and dads across the nation to have a say about what works and what doesn't work when it comes to finding quality, affordable care for their children" Senator Hanson-Young said.

A Greens survey of childcare centres was released on Sunday, which showed in the past three years waiting lists had grown and the number of available spaces had shrunk.

The survey can be accessed at childcarepoll.com.
