SMH - Childcare industry wants Scott Morrison's subsidised nannies to be qualified - 31st May 2015

Nanny training schools and agencies have warned that the qualifications bar has been set too low for nannies who will work under a new federal government scheme to provide subsidised home care from next year.

The few requirements for nannies to be subsidised under the $250 million program announced by Social Services Minister Scott Morrison in April are that they be over 18, have first aid training and have been cleared by police to work with children.
