The Forgotten Sides of Daycare for Under 3's:
Burton L. White, The Canadian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children,
©2004, P15
The people that I know who have studied the development of children over the years number in the hundreds because I’ve been around for a long time. I don’t know two of them that applaud the notion of a transfer of the primary responsibility of child rearing over to any substitute. Most of the people I know do not like it. Very few of the people I know are willing to speak out in public the way I do...
The people who create substitute care facilities are not doing it primarily because they’re looking for better ways of raising babies. They’re doing it for legitimate needs or perceived needs of adults.

I have to speak out against the way thousands and thousands of children are treated - handed from one virtual stranger to another in the name of ‘day care’. Even licensed day-care centres or preschool nurseries often fail to meet the child’s need for a sustained, close involvement with a caring person.

The Forgotten Sides of Daycare for Under 3's:
Dr. Peter S. Cook, The Canadian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children,
©2004, P20
“Extensive non-parental care in infancy is without long-term precedent in humans or any other mammals.
The major environmental changes involved in this massive social experiment should have some kind of “environmental impact assessment”.
The burden of proof that such changes in the early environment of infants are safe should be on those who advocate them, just as the purveyors of other environmental changes, like additives to food or water, must provide evidence that they are safe for human consumption.
As in medicine, the precautionary principle of primum non nocere – “first and foremost do no harm” – should apply. This principle is not being applied in polices which advocate more child care for infants and young children.”

The Forgotten Sides of Daycare for Under 3's:
Professor David Baum, The Canadian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children,

Babies and infants are, like other young mammals, nestlings who should be reared, nourished and nurtured by their mothers. Extensive non-parental care in infancy is without precedent in humans or other animals and to continue to ignore this will historically be judged to have been a madness or neglect.

Child care “experts” who tell (mothers of young children) what they want to hear will sell their books and get paid for lectures. Those who still say babies and toddlers need full-time mothering are now often charged with being sexist, manipulative old fogies who want to keep women stuck at home.

The Forgotten Sides of Daycare for Under 3's:
Linda Burton, The Canadian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children,
©2004, P35
Nobody wants to hear the truth about day care. Nobody wants to be the one to say it. So we keep skirting around the business of coming right out and telling parents that, “By golly, one of YOU needs to be there for those kids,”...
But we already know what is best for the kids. What the kids need is not profound. There is no baffling, convoluted mystery here. Kids need their parents. Kids need to be raised by someone who loves them and who puts them first, and not by someone who takes care of them because they are being paid to do it. These words are not what America wants to hear, however...

The Canadian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children,
©2004, P43
Almost everyone agrees that day care of any kind is not the optimal way to raise a child. Yet, the full-time care of a loving parent - once thought to be every child’s birthright - is now being derided as a Utopian dream.
