Use and integration of early childhood services: insights from an inner city community
Tayler, Collette P., Tennent, Lee, Farrell, Ann, & Gahan, Debbie E. (2002) Use and integration of early childhood services: insights from an inner city community. Australian Research in Early Childhood Education, 9(1), pp. 113-123.
This paper presents some of the findings from a study that explored parental usage and perceptions of a range of early childhood services that were provided in an inner city suburb of Brisbane. Using the theoretical base of social capital, parents (n = 167) from six services were surveyed to elicit information about access to, and use and expectations of, a range of services for families and young children, as well as possible approaches to linking these services. Analysis of data revealed consistency across the different groups of parents in terms of what they looked for in care and education services and widespread agreement that stronger linkages between services would enhance support to families and young children. There were also numerous suggestions as to how service integration could be realised.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
