Question:What is the historical context of early childhood in Victoria,Australia and how has this informed perceptions and attitudes to children’s services today?
I know that Aboriginal children were forcibly removed from their parents, sent to Victorian type cruel institutions to make them not so 'wild'. They were taught ideas alien to their culture and lifestyle (Christianity, taboo, bigotry etc). This warped and destroyed their individuality and innocence.
