Fear on nursery care (daycare) forces rethink by Madeleine Bunting, The Guardian, 8-Jul-04 In the UK, a government-funded study by the University of London's Institute of Education concluded that "high levels of group care (day care) before the age of three (and particularly before the age of two) were associated with higher levels of antisocial behaviour at age three". It also found that while higher quality of care could reduce the "antisocial/worried behaviour", it could not eliminate it.

Fear on nursery care (daycare) forces rethink by Madeleine Bunting, The Guardian, 8-Jul-04 "The tendency of government policy for more day nursery (day care) provision to the exclusion of other types of childcare is extremely short-sighted; it's easier for an infant to catch up on cognitive skills later on, but they can't catch up on emotional development," said (Penelope Leach, child development expert). "The trend towards more day nurseries (daycare) is out of kilter with what the research is finding."

Nursery Tales by Madeleine Bunting, The Guardian, 8-Jul-04 But the popularity of this revolution is at odds with what the experts are saying. Over exactly the time period that the sector has boomed, research on both sides of the Atlantic has reached remarkably similar conclusions; namely, that large quantities of care in a day nursery (daycare) before the age of three increases the incidence of insecurity and aggression in children, and that these damaging effects are still evident years later.

Nursery Tales by Madeleine Bunting, The Guardian, 8-Jul-04 What is extraordinary is how little impact this research (negative effects of daycare) has had, so far, on either public perception or government policy. This is partly because most of the experts have preferred to keep their heads below the parapet*, well aware of the kind of panic headlines that their findings could produce. They are terrified of thousands of already anxious parents waking up to a Daily Mail** splash - "Day nurseries (daycares) make children violent".
*Parapet = a low wall
** Daily Mail = Popular British right-wing tabloid newspaper

Nursery Tales by Madeleine Bunting, The Guardian, 8-Jul-04 "The very things which are least desirable about nurseries (daycares), such as a baby having several carers*, strike parents as a safety measure because people can keep a check on each other. They're very nervous of trusting people such as nannies and childminders** behind 'closed doors'"(says child expert Penelope Leach.)
*Carer = daycare worker
** Childminder = British term referring to a person, usually a woman, whose job is to take care of other people's children in her own home
