Taking Sex Differences Seriously
By Steven E. Rhoads, 2004
Chapter 9, "Day Care", p2
31
Even if we could somehow keep all (daycare) workers in the same center for their working lives, we wouldn't provide much continuity of care for the individual child. When the infants become toddlers, they will have new caretakers, and will probably move from the infant room and its staff to the toddler room and its staff. The very fact that the recommended staffing ratio changes from one staff member for every 4 children to one staff member for every 6 children will itself be enough to ensure that there will be new caretakers for many continuing children. With center-based child care it is simply impossible to meet (feminist evolutionary anthropologist* Sarah) Hrdy's bottom-line standard for quality day care: the "caretakers...have to be the same caretakers."
*Ms. Hrdy studies how the young are nurtured in different human cultures and in various animal species.

Taking Sex Differences Seriously
By Steven E. Rhoads, 2004
Chapter 9, "Day Care", P241
Women with higher education are the socioeconomic group...most likely to put their children in the type of care that seems worst for infants: center-based (day) care. Since women with high education levels are very likely to be married to men making above-average incomes, it is hard to credit the view that economics explain this remarkable... situation.

By fostering and encouraging the common opinion that economic conditions compel the typical married woman to work, advocates of...day care can drum up support for further subsidization of center-based care, which both experts and the public think inferior to most other forms of care.

There is little evidence to support increased subsidization of day care. Two-career families who put their children in subsidized day care apparently produce a near tripling of the odds that these children will be disobedient and aggressive--hardly a trend the government should support financially.
