Nursery Tales by Madeleine Bunting, The Guardian, 8-Jul-04 (Professor Jay Belsky, of the Institute for the Study of Children, Families and Social Issues at Birkbeck, University of London comments:)
"We have to ask whether a teacher with a class of 30 children, most of whom have been in daycare, is likely to find half of them are a little more aggressive and disobedient? Would that mean the teacher has to spend more time managing the class rather than teaching it? We have to consider the consequences of more and more children spending more and more time in group childcare arrangements, most of which are not high quality. No one wants to be responsible for making mothers feel guilty, but this has to be openly and honestly discussed."

Nursery Tales by Madeleine Bunting, The Guardian, 8-Jul-04 "The Swedish case is very revealing - there was high-quality infant care available to all and heavily subsidised. It was widely used in the 70s and 80s, but in the early 90s, parental leave was increased and now there is remarkably little use of childcare (day-care) under 18 months. Parents voted with their feet." (said Professor Ted Melhuish, respected academic in the field of childcare, Birkbeck, University of London)

Nursery Tales part two
by Madeleine Bunting,
The Guardian,
8-Jul-04
Denmark and Sweden are frequently cited as the trump* card in the nursery (daycare) debate...
...But look more closely at the Danish system, and it is not quite the trump proponents of nursery care claim it to be. Childcare starts late...
...Plus, two-thirds of children under three in state-subsidised childcare are not in nurseries...
...Growing financial pressures on the system are evident, too...the staff-children ratios have dropped to shockingly low levels
*Trump = Something capable of making a decisive difference when used at the right moment (card game term).

Nursery Tales part two
by Madeleine Bunting,
The Guardian,
8-Jul-04
The cost (for universal childcare) would be enormous; childcare is a very expensive business.
But as the Treasury does the sums, the research findings on the negative effects of group care for under-twos have begun to seep into the policy wrangles in the Treasury and the Department of Education and Skills (DES). Tony Blair's recent proposal of extending nursery education to two-year-olds was not well received; policymakers have become concerned about the possibility of a public backlash against the institutionalisation of under-threes.
...a universal state system of nurseries, aka the Danish, is no longer regarded as a (front) runner - it's very expensive...and it is likely to antagonise the child-development experts.
