The baby and the bathwater by Margaret Wente, Globe and Mail (Toronto), 21-Apr-06 Every parent in Quebec knows Jean-François Chicoine. His regular media appearances have made him the best-known pediatrician in the province. Le bon Dr. Chicoine, ("The good Dr. Chicoine") as they call him, is the baby doctor people trust.
But now, the personable young pediatrician has unleashed a bombshell:  Too many parents parachute their kids into daycare at far too young an age.
...(Dr. Chicoine's) conclusions are based on a large body of recent research about attachment theory, as well as 20 years of personal observation...
His book, co-authored by well-known journalist Nathalie Collard, is called Le bébé et l'eau du bain (The Baby and the Bathwater). “In Quebec,” he writes, “children are kept in daycare 52 weeks a year, about 60 hours a week.
Dr. Chicoine insists he's not political. He has only one agenda: kids. And he ardently believes that the best place to be for most kids under 2 is with their parents.

The baby and the bathwater by Margaret Wente, Globe and Mail, 21-Apr-06 ... “In daycare, a baby will encounter an average of 17 different caregivers between (eight and 15 months old),” says Dr. Chicoine. “During the summer, it's five or six a day.” For a child so young, having to deal with so many strangers is an unsettling, even terrifying, experience.

Day care increases risk of allergy symptoms, Reuters Health, 5-May-06 Preschool age children who attend day care have a heightened risk of developing respiratory and allergy symptoms, according to results of a study conducted by Swedish researchers.
Dr. Linda Hagerhed-Engman, of SP Swedish National Testing and Research Institute, Boras and colleagues examined the effect of day care attendance and age on respiratory and allergic diseases in children between the ages of 1 and 6 years.
...compared with children in home care, children in day care had more symptoms, including an increased risk of 33 percent for wheeze; 56 percent for cough at night; 23 percent for doctor diagnosed asthma; 15 percent for rhinitis; 75 percent for doctor diagnosed hay fever; 49 percent for eczema; and 27 percent for food allergy.
In addition, the odds of having more than six colds in the last 12 months was increased by more than 2.5-fold, and for ever having an ear infection by more than 2.0-fold, among children attending day care.
In light of the significant increases in allergic diseases in Sweden over the last decades, the researchers conclude that the "findings justify a significant public health concern."

Unintended Consequences of Preschool, Christian News Wire,

In November 2005, the Universities of Berkeley and Stanford studied 14,000 preschoolers and kindergarteners and found that children who attended preschool had more social, emotional and behavioral problems than children who had stayed home.
Yielding similar results as the Universities of Berkeley and Stanford, C.D. Howe Institute released a study in February 2006 that reviewed 33,000 children who attended Quebec’s universal preschool program between 1994 and 2002. The Institute commented, "Several measures we looked at suggest that children were worse off in the years following the introduction of the universal childcare program. We studied a wide range of measures of child well- being from anxiety and hyperactivity to social and motor skills. For almost every measure, we find that the increased use of childcare was associated with a decrease in their well-being relative to other children." The study found that the aggression scores of the preschoolers increased 24 per cent after the program was introduced.

There is just too much research showing the negative effects of daycare and preschool for the government to be promoting universal programs.
