DSS (Dept. of Social Services) chose daycare for infant, over a foster family, by Andrew Schultz, The Tribune Papers - Asheville Tribune
18-Jul-02
A poll of U.S. pediatricians, conducted by the Thomas Jefferson School of Medicine in 1990, claims that 77% believe infants six months or younger should receive care only at home. A peer survey of 1,100 baby doctors, carried out by the American Academy of Pediatricians, reported a majority of physicians consider full-time daycare to be harmful for children under age 4.

James Horwitz, M.D., Rainbow Pediatrics P.A....believes daycare has a very negative side. Children who attend daycare will have health concerns often avoided by those who stay at home, he says.

Mothering Matters by Peter S. Cook, The Australian, 24-Jul-02 So non-maternal childcare, whatever its quality, is associated with important risks.
The NICHD* researchers warned that even modest adverse effects on behaviour can have serious social consequences when large numbers of children are affected.
NICHD studies also found that when children spent more time in childcare, their mothers displayed less sensitivity when interacting with them...
...Early childcare also precludes longer breastfeeding...

Mothering Matters by Peter S. Cook, The Australian, 24-Jul-02 Healthy mothering includes breastfeeding, holding, carrying, attachment bonds, and making infants feel loved. These basic needs of infants are hardly met in institutional childcare, especially when profits must be maximised in private centres. Professor Jay Belsky, a distinguished member of the NICHD Network, described a staff ratio* of one carer to five infants under (age) two as nobody's idea of quality, but rather a licence to neglect.

Mothering Matters by Peter S. Cook, The Australian, 24-Jul-02 Childcare is now one of Australia's most profitable growth "industries" (Business Review Weekly, Rich 200, May 2002).
...We pay almost anyone to look after infants except their mothers.

Big business has discovered McKids by Anne Manne, The Age (of Melbourne, Australia), 23-Nov-02 Talking with a child-care consultant once, I mentioned an American child psychologist, Ron Lally, whose research showed that the overall size of a creche matters. For children "small is beautiful". She burst out: "But Anne, those small centres are the least economic." How quaint for me to assert children's needs over economic logic!
Category = Economics, Quality
Big business has discovered McKids by Anne Manne, The Age (of Melbourne, Australia), 23-Nov-02 Crucial to the booming child-care industry is the $8 billion of taxpayers' money to be outlaid via the Federal Government's child-care benefit over the next four years. Up to $133 a week per child for low-income families and around $61.60 for a typical family, it is paid direct to the centre. Alongside that massive taxpayer subsidy, however, is an ideological subsidy of immeasurable value, bestowed by feminism. A political forcefield repels any negative evidence about child care.
Negative findings are always ferociously attacked.
The dust settles, our consciences are cleared and it is back to business as usual. And big business at that. There has always been considerable tension between for-profit child care and child wellbeing. The present McDonaldisation threatens a collision.

Big business has discovered McKids by Anne Manne, The Age (of Melbourne, Australia), 23-Nov-02 Anne Summers recently noted that Child Care Centres Australia was hostile to paid maternity leave; by allowing mothers to stay home longer, it reduced demand.
Category = Economics, Politics
Big business has discovered McKids by Anne Manne, The Age (of Melbourne, Australia), 23-Nov-02 McDonaldising child care is certainly, as the consultant suggested, more economically efficient than...that archaic arrangement of one mother with a few of her own children rambling about on the suburban half-acre.
Now we can cram 60-100 kids on that same half-acre, put in a skeleton staff of unrelated caregivers, get mums as well as dads "maximising their human capital" in the workforce, earning money that plumps the pockets of Peacock, Groves* et al. Child-care consultants do nicely too. Happiness all round, really. Except, of course, for the children.

*Owners of large Australian daycare center chains
Daycare stocks cutting teeth by Peter Shawn Taylor, The Financial Post (Canada), 9-Dec-02 "I ethically dislike the notion of making money on a children's service," says Alma Fleet, head of the Institute of Early Childhood at Sydney's Macquarie University. "People who make money from childcare (daycare) do not have as their first priority the best interests of the local community."
