Ships Without A Shore: America's Undernurtured Children  by Anne Pierce, ©2008,  p. 118-119 It is important to note that included in the studies that confirm our innate knowledge about what children need, but which never come into public view, are recent studies from Canada, Australia, England, and New Zealand.
The large Canadian study, published in 2006, found that children raised in day care were seventeen times more hostile than children raised at home and almost three times more anxious.
…An Australian study, published in 2006, confirmed prior research finding that day care seems to harm babies’ brain chemistry and negatively affect their social-emotional development.
…A British (EPPE*) study published in 2005 found "high levels of group care” before age three was associated with higher levels of anti-social behavior…

Day care is precisely that “subtle form of language deprivation,” for, in day care, children are deprived of the optimal conditions for language development. Again, in day care, there is both too much stimulation and not enough. There is too much stimulation of the loud, turbulent, unintelligible kind and not enough of the calm, attuned, intelligible kind that comes when one adult speaks with one child.

Clearly, in day care centers, children receive lots of noise but little conversation. It is of little help that day care centers have dubbed themselves Learning Centers.
…In day care centers the baby who “talks” too often is not listened to or not heard.

Even the best day care centers cannot provide the kind of one-on-one interaction babies and toddlers need if their brains are to “thrive.” University of London psychologists compared the language used by eighteen-month-old children cared for at home with the language used by “advantaged” children of the same age cared for in day care or “nursery:”

The British researchers found that when compared to children cared for at home, children in group care or day-care centers were “less likely to have language records indicative of advanced language development.
…The psychologists considered their findings “particularly striking” since the parents of the children in day care enjoyed notable advantages in income, occupational status, and education over the parents of the children cared for at home.

If being with parents is best for young children, then government should facilitate the parent-child relationship. Surely, government should not actively discourage that relationship. Rather than subsidizing day care with tax dollars that obligate mothers who choose to bringing up their children to subsidize more prosperous mothers who do not…
…tax breaks should be given to families to do with what they will. When government aid is provided for day care, it should not encourage group-based care while discouraging family-based or in-home care.

Ships Without A Shore: America's Undernurtured Children  by Anne Pierce, ©2008,  p. 192

Drive through our neighborhoods’ empty streets and ask yourself not merely where the children have gone but where childhood has gone. It is most unlikely you will see a child sitting under a tree with a book, or friends engaged in collecting bugs, leave, and sticks. Where are the children? They are in day care centers, now dubbed “learning centers.”
