"Pre to Three: Policy Implications of Child Brain Development", Testimony by Diane Fisher, Ph.D, familyandhome.org,
5-Jun-97

 
Lately, we've read reports stating that high-quality, non-parental daycare is the equivalent of being at home with mom or dad. In reality, how much can "quality" daycare accomplish?
...these children miss their parents' perspective on the world: their comments, jokes, the mirror through which they learn who they are, a sense of family identity -- irreplaceable stuff -- neither trivial nor superficial -- but so devalued in our society!

Multiple caregivers, a common phenomena in institutional care (day-care), is very destructive to the developmental goals of the first three years of life. It is unfortunate that our society is impatient with slow, subtle infant schedules in this fast, goal-oriented culture.

If we agree that attachment and emotional development are critical for healthy, well-functioning children, then encouraging parents to place their infants and young children in daycare at early ages and for long hours does not appear to be in their children's, and ultimately, society's best interests.

Things Immeasurable
I have respect for studies that attempt to grapple with the issues of children's growth and their response to different environments. I must comment, however, on what is not measured. Science cannot quantify important social qualities such as compassion, courage, character, and moral vision. These traits are inextricably linked with attachment and emotional development. Do we really believe that these and other important values can be reduced to learning objectives and effectively taught in all-day early childhood (daycare) group settings?
