Winter 1993
Parents who are not in financial distress, however, are choosing daycare in the belief that it will do no harm. And they are hoping that the daycare they have chosen is of high quality. As it turns out, however, high-quality daycare is rare*, primarily because it is extremely costly...

"There is very little frankness and honesty in this area of research because of the fear of being politically unpopular," (Karl Zinsmeister of the American Enterprise Institute) asserts.

Winter 1993
Low pay, minimal if any training requirements, high turnover among staff, and other problems common to the daycare business suggest that most out-of-home care as we know it is far from optimal.

...the person you hire today might be gone in six months.

The high turnover rate among poorly paid child-care workers...creates an unstable environment precisely when stability is most needed in a child's life. "Turnover among childcare workers is second only to parking-lot and gas-station attendants," says Marcy Whitebook, director of the National Child Care Staffing Study.  A study conducted by the Child Care Employee Project in Oakland, California, shows a 41 percent annual turnover rate at daycare operations across the nation.
