If it can be linked to the learning happening in the room than yes, the assessor would allow it, as it would be a part of the programming for the child interested.
all the parents in this thread calling us educators and expecting us to have knowledge so we are not just babysitters, have you ever taken into consideration the amount we get paid for the job we do?

It's not the parents calling you educators - that's what they are! At least at my one (and at $140 a day I would expect so).
I called the staff child care workers at the start and was corrected as they are educators. That's why they have qualifications. You don't need a qualification to babysit.

My daycare also doesn't have a TV and I would not like them to have one, I just don't think it's the place for it.

I used to watch Animal Docos with the 4-5yr olds during rest time. I would stand next to the telly fielding questions , pointing things out and adding my own knowledge. Why did I use the telly? Because when your room is the only one out of 5 where the children don't sleep you do what you can to keep the noise levels down to provide opportunities for rest for the other children. We tried every trick in the book first but table activities and group times just didn't work for very long and we had to mop so couldn't have kids running around. This particular group always got very loud very quick.
While I had the majority of children on the mat or reading quietly (which was their other option), the other staff were doing cleaning, doing heavy work with the special needs, and/or we were covering our own lunches so were down a staff member.
Its not always as cut and dried as it seems.

I wouldn't have a problem with it although my DD doesn't go to day care, at home she only bops along to the music if the Telly is on (she's still pretty young). Even if she was watching it though it still wouldn't bother me unless it was going on for hours and the kids were not doing anything else during the day.
Education and culture come from many different mediums and Telly is a huge part of our society. I grew up with very strict tv rules and to be honest I just feel left out a lot (even now when people talk about cartoons they loved, or movies that "everybody" has seen). I don't see the harm in allowing moderate use at either day care, school or anywhere else (again, as long as other things arn't being neglected for excessive viewing).
