Summary
  • This report provides a summary of data collected in the Childcare and School Teachers Survey conducted as part of the Pathways of Care Longitudinal Study (POCLS) In New South Wales. POCLS is the first large scale prospective longitudinal study on out-of-home care (OOHC) in Australia and will follow 4,126 children aged 0-17 years old entering OOHC in the state. To date, four Waves of data collection have been undertaken at 18-24 month intervals. The Childcare and School Teachers Survey was completed between 2013 and 2016 - approximately 3-5 years after the child entered OOHC for the first time - with childcare, preschool or school teachers providing data for 670 children. Topics include: attendance at childcare or preschool, absences and reasons, additional assistance and specialised services, education plans, Child Behaviour Checklist, caregiver involvement, attendance at school, repeating a grade, suspensions and absences, participation in learning activities and homework, academic performance, participation in extracurricular activities, children's friends, child behaviour and happiness, and transfer of information between child care centres and schools. The findings suggest that children who enter OOHC for the first time at younger ages were generally faring better than those who entered OOHC for the first time at older ages. Relatively large proportions of all of the children exhibited clinical or borderline behavioural problems, particularly at older ages, and about half of the school-aged children were reported to be learning less and working less hard than their peers. Differences were also seen by type of care placement, with children in foster care spending less time in childcare or preschool than children in kinship care and who had exited OOHC, who appeared to spend closer to the state average time.
