Carolan, Christine and Byard, Sheila (1992) History of children's services in the Western Region : putting magic in the lives of children and participation in the lives of their parents - Project Report. Crow Collection Association.

Abstract

The funding application used the title "Putting Magic in the Lives of Children and Participation in the Lives of their Parents" to place the project in its historic setting. "Putting Magic in the Lives of Children" was a slogan from the early 1940s used to popularise the need for preschool education. Thirty years later the community child care movement of the 1970s emphasised the need for parent involvement in the services provided for their children, via "Participation in the Lives of Parents".
