Following on neatly from yesterday's post about grandparents, the DCSF has just published a new research study of how modern families put together care packages for their offspring. The report provides a detailed breakdown of who cares for children at different stages of their lives (parents, grandparents, nursery etc), and how this can vary between different social groups and income brackets. Fitting It All Together: How Families Arrange their Childcare and the Influence on Children’s Home Learning is online now.

Also dealing with families and children, another new publication from the DCSF - Children and Parents’ Experiences of Recently Improved Play Areas - contains in-depth feedback from parents on the play facilities which are available for their children.
