Quote/Comment

Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, Part One, Infants and Their Mothers - Some Aspects of the Biological Background; Chapter 1,The Species-Normal Experience for Human Infants - A Biological and Cross-Cultural Perspective,Chapter 1, P32 Since 1951 (with the publication of Maternal Care and Mental Health  by Dr. John Bowlby), the world has been on notice that total early separation and deprivation of the care which mothers normally provide can have serious consequences. Bowlby went on, through ethological, cross-cultural and psychological studies, to develop his major contributions in his three-volume work Attachment and Loss (Bowlby 1969; 1973; 1981). Yet some advocates of early day care have sought to dismiss any relevance of this work to long day care, describing it as "Bowlbyism"

Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996,  P38 Observing Swedish children for five months after starting day care at ages of 6 to 12 months, (Harsman in 1994) reported that "52% showed a negative change in mood during the initial period and they were assessed as sad and depressed in the day-care setting.

Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, Part Two, The Needs of Mothers and their Infants; Chapter 2, Meeting the Optimum Needs of Infants and their Mothers, P41 Child care is being widely promoted without a critical examination of what is best for the mothers and the infants whose needs it claims to meet.
Category = Quality
Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, P 41 (Dr. Penelope Leach*) reminds us that we were all children first, and before that we were babies and toddlers, with important feelings. In the rush to daycare for economic and ideological reasons, the feelings of those most intimately involved - the mothers and their young children - have been neglected.
*Dr. Penelope Leach - Famous British maternal & child expert

Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, P 50 Why day care centres seldom meet infants' needs:
Child care was invented for the convenience of adults not the needs or wishes of children. Research has consistently shown that infants of working mothers prefer their mothers to their day-care providers, so if a baby's wants are indeed much the same as its needs, it follows that babies don't need day centre care. It is self-evident that the quality of care which a mother can provide for her baby and infant, as described above, cannot be dependably available from carers* in a day care centre.
