Day Care
Child Psychology & Adult Economics

Edited by Bryce Christensen
©1989,  "Discussion for The Risks of Day Care" p64

(Dr. Westman* noted that) In the kibbutzim, the Israelis developed perhaps the best controlled study of collective child-rearing yet undertaken...
But now, the kibbutzim have largely backed away from institutional care for infants and have gone back to the nuclear family.
(See History of Daycare - Israeli Kibbutzim)

Day Care
Child Psychology & Adult Economics

Edited by Bryce Christensen
©1989 , “Day Care: Changing Incentives”
by James R. Walker, assistant professor of economics at the University of Wisconsin--Madison
p79
Some policies have indirect (and perhaps unintended) effects on the consumer's budget set.
For example, government programs or policies legislated on suppliers affect the cost of day care. Most notable are licensing standards imposed by many localities on day-care center and family home providers. A change in the standards such as an increase in the staff/child ratio increases the supplier's cost. The increase in cost will be passed on to the consumer in the form of higher prices for child care.

Day Care

©1989, “Day Care: Changing Incentives”
by James R. Walker
p86

Changes in government policies and programs affect the incentives for the use of day care.
…as previously discussed, a tax credit for child-care expenditures was legislated (in the
USA) in 1976. This tax expenditure program is the largest federal policy supporting child care.
Record-keeping requirements to document child-care expenditures favor the use of larger, more formal providers of day care such as center-based group care. This facet of the program reduces the relative price of the more formal (larger) providers of day care. The tax credit subsidizes paid market care.
Nonrefundability of the tax credit limits its value to many low-income families.
(Poor families) are more likely to use...other forms of care which are unpaid or paid in-kind than are higher-income groups.
Both of these mechanisms (Record-keeping and Nonrefundability) create distributional effects which favor middle- and upper-income families.

...changes in "tastes"...cannot be dismissed.
As more households use day care, it becomes socially more acceptable for others to use it as well; here is less social stigma attached to using day care.
