Men in Childcare Network Ireland

The Men in Childcare Network group encourages men who are interested in a career in childcare. The vision is that children will feel normal being cared for by both men and women. This vision is based on the belief that children benefit from a gender balanced care setting and that it is optimum in terms of the social development of a healthy child. The inclusion of trained male childcare workers could undo a tremendous amount of negative stereotyping about men and their abilities to nurture and care for children. Men in Childcare Network Ireland believe that in an era of equality and the growing awareness in gender equality issues it is perfectly logical for men to aspire to such a vision.
