The Hidden Costs of Childcare by Patricia Morgan
Family Education Trust
1992
page 13
If positive results from pre-school projects have been enormously exaggerated, then even worse is the suggestion that these will result from any form of non-parental care for young children. Here day nurseries and childminders* are...represented as educational.
The numbers of distressed or disturbed children with language problems in the childminding studies of Bridget Bryant and colleagues in Oxfordshire, or B. Mayell and P. Petrie's in Inner London, do not point to much educational benefit in the frequently unhappy hours the children spent with what were often detached, unresponsive and very ignorant women (in home daycare).

*Childminder-British term referring to a person, ususally a woman, whose job is to take care of other people's children in her own home.

In 1985, Ron Haskins turned to the subject. While they had received little or no publicity, a total of 10 studies from four different countries (United States, Bermuda, Sweden, England) now related extended use of day-care to a constellation of negative and aggressive behaviour, and decreased co-operation, with both peers and adults.
Attempting to clarify the situation, Haskins compared children who had attended full time day centres between about three months of age and the time they entered school at five, with three other groups of similar background who had less extensive periods of group care. Followed over their first 2 or 3 years of schooling, the former were more likely to hit, kick and push; threaten, swear and argue; not to use strategies like discussion or walking away to deal with difficulties and to be rated by teachers as having aggressiveness a a serious deficit of social behaviour.

...in A.F. Osborn and J.E. Milbank's British study The Effects of Early Education...children who had attended local authority day nurseries were overwhelmingly:
"...prone to antisocial and aggressive behaviour, were hyperactive and unable to concentrate on school work, did not get on with others at school, were clumsy and anxious".

Moreover, the sheer time children spend at (day care) centres, means that they all too easily lapse into bickering relationships with each other. They vie for adult attention, compete for equipment and get on each other's nerves.

page 19
Behaviour problems tend to emerge where children receive little adult attention and associate closely in peer groups, just as language development is held back where peer conversation replaces more important adult-child talk. But, such drawbacks are vastly accentuated in (day care) facilities which bring together large numbers of young children of the same age. Human babies do not tend to come in large litters.
