Daycare: Why it hurts Babies and Toddlers by Yvette Whitaker, home.netcom.com, 1999 As I mentioned, I picked out a very "excellent" daycare for my son, but nine times out of ten when I walk in there's an infant wailing in a swing. He's blotchy and wet enough to have been crying for a while. Every single daycare I visited in my search for the best had at least one blotchy wet infant available for inspection. A couple of times it upset me so much that I offered to pick the baby up, but the staff took a dim view of this.

Daycare: Why it hurts Babies and Toddlers by Yvette Whitaker, home.netcom.com, 1999 The staff are not cruel or negligent people, they just have a lot of other kids who need to be fed, diapered, changed, etc. If they put down one kid to attend to the crying newborn, the first kid is going to start howling. That's just the way it is.
The newborn is learning a very important lesson as he calls out in vain from the swing and no-one can counter it for him with explanations.

Daycare: Why it hurts Babies and Toddlers by Yvette Whitaker, home.netcom.com, 1999 Consider an older baby who needs to start encountering some boundaries. When he graduates from the nursery to the toddler room, the ratio of children to caregivers is going to jump even higher. There may be seven or more kids to one adult.
Imagine being responsible for seven boisterous, obstinate, high-energy toddlers. Even if they were all your own, you would have trouble maintaining your equanimity. But these are all other people's kids. You have no real authority over them. You have no real stake in how well they learn to cooperate. You might not even know them very well. There may be some real misbehavers among them -- children whose parents are lax with discipline at home because they're too tired to deal with it or can't bear to ruin the few precious hours they do have with their babies. What do you honestly think will be the outcome of this situation?

Daycare: Why it hurts Babies and Toddlers by Yvette Whitaker, home.netcom.com, 1999 Most daycares claim to disinfect toys before they are shared, but if you spend 10 minutes in the nursery watching the action, you will wonder as I do how this can be practically achieved.
