Rethinking the Early Childcare agenda
by  Dr. Peter S. Cook, Medical Journal of Australia, 1999, 170:29-31
I argue here that for children up to 2 to 3 years of age, and particularly during infancy, this agenda of subsidised, universally available, high quality professional childcare (daycare) is misconceived, and a rethink is needed. Evidence suggests that this agenda:
  • Is unrealistic (eg, high quality childcare for all is not affordable);
  • Overlooks accumulating evidence of risks of undesirable outcomes sometimes associated with early childcare;
  • Is contrary to much expert opinion about what is likely to be best for infants;
  • Is contrary to the desire of many working mothers to care for their own children, if they could afford it; and
  • Relies partly on the now-discredited ideology of cultural determinism.

Rethinking the Early Childcare agenda
by  Dr. Peter S. Cook, Medical Journal of Australia, 1999, 170:29-31
This childcare (day-care) agenda relies partly on the now-discredited ideology of cultural determinism, which taught that human nature is culturally determined by social conditioning, denying evolutionary and biological influences. Yet the needs of infants and their mothers, as mothers, are based in our genes and cannot be refashioned to suit ideologies.

Rethinking the Early Childcare agenda
by  Dr. Peter S. Cook, Medical Journal of Australia, 1999, 170:29-31
Large-scale institutional, long-daycare rearing of babies and very young children by professionals offering no continuing relationship with them is without successful precedent in the history of our species.
When the evidence and professional opinion agree that mothers are the best people to care for their young children, it seems neither wise nor cost-effective for governments to spend large sums of money subsidising childcare for mothers who would prefer to be helped to care for their infants themselves.
