Daycare Is For Parents, by Elliott Barker, M.D., D.Pysch., F.R.C.P.(C),
Director of the Canadian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children
and Editor of Empathic Parenting, Nurturing Magazine on-line

In the 70’s every daycare advocate had a briefcase full of studies purporting to show that daycare wasn’t harmful, and spread these wishes for beliefs in the over-firm conviction that universal daycare was the only way to a shining future of equality for all.
But what was/is their motivation? Who is daycare for? Certainly not the infants and toddlers. No-one with even the slightest unbiased awareness of the emotional needs of under three’s would create institutions necessitating a three to one ratio of ever-changing caregivers.

Reactive Attachment Disorder (Marasmus),,
The effects of bleak caretaking environments (daycare) were studied by Rene Spitz and William Goldfarb in 1945.
...children suffered from...indiscriminate affection, extremely demanding or attention seeking behavior, social unrelatedness with peers, autistic like behavior, hyperactivity, aggression (including acts of cruelty), temper tantrums, no cause and effect thinking, and no concept of time, past or future.

Come Home,Mom by Marnie Ko,, 04-Dec-98 The Daycare Experiment
Raising small children in substitute care is quite literally an experiment defying evolution, where the subjects (children) do not give their permission.
Most alarming, infant daycare has been associated with attachment insecurity, aggression, and noncompliance.

Come Home,Mom by Marnie Ko,, 04-Dec-98 The Biological Aspect of Mothercare
Further, we cannot expect or believe that a stranger, for money, will provide a level of care and the long-term commitment that a parent will free, out of love.
Nowhere do daycare advocates consider the needs of the small baby or child who has no choices or no rights. 
...A woman can CHOOSE to work, but her child cannot CHOOSE NOT to be raised by a daycare, babysitter, or nanny.  No infant would CHOOSE stranger care over parent care.  Parents don't need study after study to know this.  We don't need studies that claim children do fine in daycare.

Come Home,Mom by Marnie Ko,, 04-Dec-98 What Do The Experts Say?
"The fact remains that for children under three years of age, non-familial childcare involves a massive experiment in raising infants and young children in day care centers in the absence of any adults who are related or have a continuing commitment to them."
-- Dr. Peter Cook, Psychologist, author of Early Childcare: Infants & Nations at Risk

"On the basis of this developmental and social ecology of daycare in America, I conclude that we have a nation at risk."
-- Dr. Jay Belsky, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Human Development, Pennsylvania State University
