Raising Babies: Should under 3s go to nursery?
by Steve Biddulph, 2005,  p. ix - x
I had started out as a believer in the ideal of quality nursery care...
But the more I saw of the reality of daycare centres and nurseries, and the more conversations I had with parents and carers*, it became clear to me that the reality never matched the fantasy. In fact, it was often a disastrous disappointment. The best nurseries struggled to meet the needs of very young children in a group setting. The worst were negligent, frightening and bleak: a nightmare of bewildered loneliness that was heartbreaking to watch.

Raising Babies: Should under 3s go to nursery?
by Steve Biddulph, 2005 p. 11
Nurseries (day-cares) are marketed so well that parents at home have even begun to feel that they are not as good for their babies and toddlers as 'professionals' might be.

'Will nursery care (daycare) harm my child?'
The results may be alarming to some, but seem perfectly obvious to others. Finally, we are waking up to the fact that something is amiss in the way we rear our children, and this includes our glib assumption that group care in nurseries is probably OK. As the research you are about to read tells us -- as common sense might also tell us -- it is not OK: far from it.

Raising Babies: Should under 3s go to nursery?
by Steve Biddulph, 2005, p. 12
Daycare was originally intended for three and four-year-olds, but its use has spread downwards; sometimes babies are now put into nurseries and crches when they are just days old. The hours have gotten longer too, millions of children under three are in daycare centres ten hours a day, five days a week in America, the UK, Japan and other industrialized countries across the globe

This large-scale group care of the very young is a recent thing. It has happened without prior research or understanding...
If it turns out that early child-care is a damaging thing, then millions of lives will have been adversely affected.

Raising Babies: Should under 3s go to nursery?
by Steve Biddulph, 2005, p. 16
The rapid adoption of nursery care (day-care) in the early years has been a huge social experiment; it is essentially a gamble taken by millions of parents that 'everything will be OK'. The results of that experiment are now emerging...

Raising Babies: Should under 3s go to nursery?

The childcare debate is one of the most emotionally intense topics of contemporary society. Controversies that go this close to people's hearts generate a lot of emotion....

Raising Babies: Should under 3s go to nursery?

Sweden is the best example of this -- with probably the world's best quality nursery care available for all, usage for the under threes has been falling solidly for the last decade.

Raising Babies: Should under 3s go to nursery?
by Steve Biddulph, 2005, p. 21
(In the future) The raising of very young children in large, commercial nurseries (daycares), with their emotionally sterile environments, plastic surfaces and bored, underpaid, under trained and exhausted staff, will be looked on as a brief and horrible era, along with all the other nightmares of our childrearing history -- gin in the baby's bottle, child labour in the coal mines, and boarding school for six-year-olds. It will be, to quote a beautiful phrase, consigned to the dustbin of history.
