Who’s left holding the baby?

Wire Free has just made two documentaries called, “Who’s Left Holding the Baby?” with the reporter Madeleine Morris. The first one is here and sees Madeleine comparing life in an Australian daycare centre with a village in Fiji where the kids almost look after themselves. Who has it better? Episode 2 is here and sees Madeleine and her daughter Scarlett visiting a Chinese boarding kindergarten where children as young as three are left by their parents for the whole week.
