Children First
What our society must do--and is not doing--for our children today
by Penelope Leach 1994

PART TWO: Children and Parents
Chapter 4: Daycare: Dreams and Nightmares, P77
It is easy to see why governments and their institutions are eager to believe that message. They want the best for children, or say they do. But...individual care (of children) is very expensive. Daycare can offer economies of scale on the one hand and jobs on the other.

Children First
What our society must do--and is not doing--for our children today
by Penelope Leach 1994,  P77
Why do (parents) believe that daycare is OK? What sad and subtle subtext* tells them that money earned away and spent on their children is more important than time at home spent with their children?
* subtext -content of a book, play, movie, etc. which is not announced explicitly by the characters but is implicit or becomes something understood by the reader or audience.
Category = Politics 
Children First
What our society must do--and is not doing--for our children today
by Penelope Leach 1994,  P79
Most of the parents who must leave their infants with outsiders and most of the governments who encourage them to do so favor professional childcare over the arrangements with private individuals which currently provide most daycare places, especially for babies and toddlers.
...But even the best of this type of (home daycare) care is not generally regarded as desirable or satisfactory.
Category = Politics, Quality
Children First
What our society must do--and is not doing--for our children today
by Penelope Leach 1994,  P80
The truth is that institutional daycare offers advantages to adults that have nothing to do with infants' safety or happiness.

Children First
What our society must do--and is not doing--for our children today
by Penelope Leach 1994,  P80
Policy-makers assume that there are major economic advantages to institutional care, especially the economy of scale achieved by having one worker looking after, say, five infants or ten preschool children, instead of an individual caregiver who typically looks after only one or two in addition to her own.
