Rescuing the child from the slums

Crow, Ruth (1977) Rescuing the child from the slums. unpublished. (Unpublished)


The draft typescript contains a chronological history of centres established for young children in Victoria. Historically, Victoria has been the Australian State that pioneered both day nursery (creche) and kindergarten movements. Compared to Victoria, since the 1940's, provisions for such centres for young children has been quite minimal in other states, except for the A.C.T. Therefore the historical background presented here is based on Victoria.
