Principle 6 of the 1959 U.N. Declaration of the Rights of the Child states that “...a child of tender years shall not save in exceptional circumstances, be separated from his mother”.

Mary Carlson, the Harvard Medical School scientist...discovered that youngsters whose families kept them in ... daycare centres on work days had abnormal levels of stress hormones on weekdays but not on the weekend when the children were home...

When you cope with two or three at once, there is no way you can simultaneously respond to messages about milk, cuddles, and dropped toys. (ask anyone who has triplets.)

After all, one-to-one care by someone outside the family offers no economies of scale*. If it releases anyone to fill the skill shortage it does so only by leaving babies with less-skilled - or at least less well paid adults, an uncomfortably colonialist (exploitation of a weaker by a stronger) thought.
*Economies of Scale - These occur when mass producing a good results in lower average cost.  The more of a good you produce, the less it costs for each additional unit.  For example, a plant that produces 1000 cars would be more efficient than a plant producing five cars.

Contrary to the expectations (and desires) of many in the field of child development, the NICHD Study shows:
(1) that the more time children spend in any of a variety of nonmaternal care arrangements across the first 4.5 years of life, the more aggression, disobedience, and conflict with adults they manifest at 54 months of age and in kindergarten;
(2) that these seemingly adverse effects remain even after taking into account multiple features of children’s families, as well as the quality and type of nonmaternal care which children experienced; and
(3) that more time in care predicts not just more assertive or independent behavior, but more truly aggressive and disobedient behavior, as well...

“To replace a mother with an employee cannot be done. This is partly of course because what is expected of mothers is far beyond what is expected of any employee. But allowing for any kind of time off, promotion, on the job training, vacations - anything of this kind - you cannot provide a child with a continuous or more or less continuous mother figure in an institutional setting.
“Now this is even before we start talking about how many infants economics demand that one person should care for. Once you add in that factor and say that this group of employees are to care for six or eight or ten babies, of course the whole thing becomes ludicrous, because you can’t do it for multiple children. To meet the needs of even twins, any mother of twins will tell you, in the sensitive way we most of us reckon to meet the needs of a single baby is in itself impossible. Staff in charge of some of the best residential and day nurseries in the country have lavished ingenuity, devotion and all the money they could get on trying to provide stability of care for the babies in their charge.
It cannot be done.
