#72 The challenges of "flexible childcare"

This week Lisa, Leanne and Liam take a look at the history and challenges of trying to make the ECEC sector more "flexible". We discuss 24-hour centres, the big 2013 flexibility trials and what we think might happen with the new Child Care Subsidy system.

Listener note: Unfortunately Liam suffered some technical issues in the first 10 minutes of the episode. Apologies for the poor sound quality.
