In several suburbs around Melbourne Creches, or day nursing homes for young children, have been established and are proving of immense benefit to working mothers. That no ifforthas been made to establish a- similar institution in Footscray is inother reflection upon the district's enterprise. While it is neces sary for women, such as widows,. de serted wives, and wives of'invalid hus bands, to go out to work, creches are a necessity. Such women cannot afford to pay for the services of nurse-girls but the small.fee of threepence per day for one child, or twopence per day each for two or more childrbn in a family, is within their means. For this small fee children are fed and receive proper care and attention T'hey receive a warm bath,' proper rest,, clothes where needed and are provided with happy playmates. They are' tafght habits o obcdince, cleanliness and honesty,,and recelve a little education in the kindergarten sub jocts.. In the several creches existent in 1910-11, no less th...
