The Problem with Daycare
by Karl Zinsmeister,
The American Enterprise

May/June 1998, page 9 & 10
(Day care children must interact with a large number of caregivers).

..."Split shifts to cover the long nursery day double the number of people with whom babies must interact.  Lunch breaks, sick leave, vacations and in-service training courses produce such constant staff movement that case studies suggest an average of seven different people a day and 15 a week (some of them strangers "filling in") handle each child.
-- Penelope Leach

This is built-in churning, (Penelope) Leach* notes. On top of that you must add all the turnover that occurs whenever there is a change of center or arrangements.
*Penelope Leach - famous British maternal and child expert

"The child is thrust into the care of some strange person, disrupting the bonds established with the mother.  And just when he sends out some tender, new shoots of affection, he gets a new sitter," explains child psychiatrist Jack Raskin.  "The child can't shout, 'My heavens, every attempt I'm making to get the closeness I need is sabotaged.  What the hell is being done here?'  But you'll see the results, perhaps five years later when he's disruptive in school, or ten years later when he's on drugs."

The Problem with Daycare
by Karl Zinsmeister,
The American Enterprise

May/June 1998, page 10
Fear of abandonment is a primal human worry...The oldest theme in literature is that people can't simply be interchanged one for another in affairs of the heart.  So is it really so hard to understand why children might suffer from being disconnected from the people they love most?  And as wrenching as lost loyalty and love are for grown-ups, they are even harder for children -- because children are forming their very first attachments and have no other bonds or sense of worth to fall back on.

The Problem with Daycare
by Karl Zinsmeister,
The American Enterprise

May/June 1998, page 12
After studying hired child care in depth, in both its non-profit and for-profit forms, White (Burton White, former director of the Harvard Preschool Project and one of the world's leading authorities on the first three years of life) pronounces it "a total disaster area," with "no feasible way of turning it into a model industry".  Most families will find only "pretty poor substitutes" for parental care when they look outside the home, he warns.
