Institutionalized daycare in the spin cycle by Maureen Bader, Western Standard (Canada), 14 Jul 2008 All-day kindergarten. No matter how the government tries to spin it, all-day kindergarten is nothing more than institutionalized daycare. The B.C. government says quite rightly that parents want choice. But parents want to make choices, not take choices imposed by government.
Not only is institutionalized daycare expensive, it may not be the best option for children. If governments were truly interested in empowering parents with childcare choices, they would allow parents to keep more of their earnings to maximize their options.
Parents have firm ideas on childcare. In fact, research suggests that parents' first choice is to stay home with their children. Their second choice would be to have a relative care for their children. Way down the line is government-provided daycare, even if it is heavily subsidized.

Day Care May Not Shield Kids From Asthma, Allergies by Kathleen Doheny, HealthDay Reporter for U.S. News & World Report, 9 Sep 2009 (Study debunks 'hygiene hypothesis' that early exposures boost immune response)
Early day care, so the story goes, exposes kids to more germs and illnesses at an early age, thereby protecting them from asthma and allergies later on. Scientists call it the "hygiene hypothesis", but a new study casts doubt upon its existence...
We found no evidence for any protection for asthma, allergy (etc.)..." said Dr. Johan C. de Jongste, professor of pediatric respiratory medicine at Erasmus University Medical Center in the Netherlands...
The bottom line? Early exposure to germs and other organisms does cause more symptoms early in a child's life, but without a counterbalancing health benefit later on, as was previously believed...

Study: Home Daycare Kids Hooked on TV by Donna Gordon Blankinship, Time Magazine, 23 Nov 2009 Parents...may be surprised to discover (their preschoolers) are sitting as many as two hours a day in front of a TV...
When added to the two to three hours many parents already admit to allowing at home, preschoolers in child care may be spending more than a third of the about 12 hours they are awake each day in front of the electronic baby sitter, said Dr. Dimitri Christakis, a pediatrician at Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center in Seattle and a researcher at the University of Washington.
Christakis said he thought television use was probably underreported.
The American Academy of Pediatrics discourages any television viewing of any kind in the first 2 years of life ...
Other research has connected excessive TV watching during the preschool years with language delay, obesity, attention problems and aggression.
