Quote/Comment

There's No Place Like Work, by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, page 25 Child psychologists in London found that children in group care showed significantly less "affection and emotion" than children cared for at home, also noting a higher level of aggression among those in group care.
Category = Behavior
There's No Place Like Work, by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, page 25 It also appears that the negative consequences of significant time in day care last longer than experts once imagined.
A RAND Corporation study in 1989 showed "a statistically significant adverse effect" on children's intellectual ability deriving from their (being in) group-care facilities.
Category = Development
There's No Place Like Work, by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, page 26 The typical day care center is simply not a place where a preschooler is likely to get the constant personal care that he requires.
...Instability and discontinuity are given in a system of professionalized, non-parental care. When applied to a day care setting, normal work routines such as split shifts, lunch breaks, sick leave, vacations, and training courses translate into more people the child has to interact with. Some studies have suggested an average of 7 different people a day and 15 a week for each daycare child. One estimate reported that 41 percent of all caregivers quit their positions each year. With the increasing demand for day care, this staff turnover has accelerated dramatically over the past decade. This kind of turnover is particularly traumatic for babies, who have to communicate their needs non-verbally.

There's No Place Like Work - How Business, government, and our obsession with Work have driven Parents from Home
by Brian C. Robertson,

2000,  pages 26-27
Regimentation and routine are ever-present aspects of any day care regime, simply as a matter of practical necessity. Unlike the personal attention given to younger children in the home, which can be adjusted to the needs and temperament of the child, the environment of the day care center governs and the child has to conform. Scheduled activities are not so much for intellectual development, as for keeping a large group of youngsters occupied. This is to be expected; day care workers are not, after all, professional educators, but professional caretakers. Their task is more akin to crowd control than to the formation of young minds.
Category = Quality
There's No Place Like Work, by Brian C. Robertson,  2000, page 27 The standardization and routine that are a necessary aspect of the day care environment mean that children must live by a strictly regulated schedule: Nap times whether or not they are tired, meal times regardless of when they get hungry (and with no allowance for individual taste), play times with the same pre-programmed activities, often with little variation day after day.
