Men In Childcare

This paper will examine the role of men in early childcare and education; whether men are fully represented in the childcare workforce, and if not, what can be done to increase the range and availability of training to promote childcare as a worthwhile and credible career option for men.
And the question is….
 ‘Why don’t more men get involved with the care and education of babies and young children?
 What can we do to make this a more attractive career for men, and what are the benefits, if any, of so doing?
 Are there barriers to men choosing this pathway which could be removed, and if so, how?’
