To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled Parliament.

The petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that:

1.We are opposed to the childcare guidelines issued by the National Childcare Accreditation Council and the Keating Government, and

2.In particular we find offensive the guidelines relating to Christmas Carols and the misconceived gender statements relating to the childrens toys. We believe that childcare should first and foremost reflect the values of parents and not trendy childcare theorists.

We therefore call upon the House to reject the guidelines as they are currently drafted.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
