Quote/Comment

Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, Part Three, Research into Outcomes of Early child Care; Chapter 5, Six Subsequent Studies Showing Risks, P102 A Swedish study of infants' reactions in child care.
...Dr Ingrid Harsman (1984, 1994) studied the reactions of infants before and after placement in day care centres in Stockholm. Her study is important because it may be unique in its scope and qualities and it was done in the capital of the country with the world's best day care (Sweden).
...52 per cent of the day-care infants...were assessed as sad and depressed in the day-care setting.
..."after seven weeks of day-care attendance, the day-care infants showed a significant drop in speech development...

Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, P106

 

The author concluded that "the results also indicate that prolonged maternal separations may negatively influence the infants' cognitive development and the process of adjustment. Taken together the results imply that many of the infants in this study were vulnerable during the first five months in day care".
Since the study concluded after five months there is no reason to assume this "vulnerability" ceased after that period.

Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, Chapter 6,
A Critique of a Review of Research into Child Care Outcomes;
P121
 
It seems that, except perhaps in Sweden, many child care workers are not well paid and there is a view that their pay should increase. But if one tries to improve quality by increasing staff pay, and by increasing staff-child ratios to provide care comparable with that which an ordinary devoted parent would give, any economies of scale are reversed as salaries and staff ratios are improved and it ceases to be cost-effective. Yet this was the economic rationale for day care in the first place.
Category = Economics
Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, P121 ...for the very things which improve the possibility of high quality care - decent wages and conditions, good staff-child ratios, incentives for stability of tenure - cost money, and a great deal of it. If we are to increase funding, why fund centres and not parental leave?"
