Child care as a career for men
It is also a constant source of frustration that employment in child care and education is still seen as low-status and low-paid, and therefore usually women's work.
One of our main aims in carrying out work in this area is therefore to promote raising the status of work in child care and education, first and foremost to benefit children. If this becomes a more attractive career option for men as well as for women, it can only be good for all concerned.
