You Are Not My Kid's Mom, by Diane Fisher, Clinical psychologist and mother of three, published in the The Saturday Evening Post, posted on dadi.org/daycare.htm, 6-Sep-00,
page 2 & 3
(Those who praise the use of) institutional day care sometimes justify their (opinion) by repeating this claim that children need the socialization and stimulation ordinary parents can't provide.  But they ought not to delude themselves about how much stimulation a child can get when one young teacher must struggle to entertain eight toddlers.

...a visitor to an infant center can see well-meaning teachers of three-and-four-month-old babies counting and naming animals in books, months--years even--before these children could possibly benefit from such an exercise.  Infants need attachment and love, gentle long sequences of playing and responding back and forth, not counting and labeling.  But how would one post that curriculum on the wall?

Readers who are mothers should reflect on how you knew when it was time to change a diaper.  Busy caregivers change diapers according to bulletin board schedules.  How much connection and interaction with the children can these caregivers have, no matter how well-paid, how well-educated, or how well-motivated they may be?  It's not their fault.  They are moving from task to task throughout the day, and their quality-assurance record depends upon it.  But the kind of attention babies need to thrive--that they can never deliver, no matter what the paperwork says.

Pre-schoolers are interested in and enjoy other children, but it is adults to whom they still look for learning and emotional security...
Children learn to see the world through the eyes of an adult they love.  Claims that infants can be socialized by other infants, that preschoolers can bond with their peers for ten hours a day, should be tossed where they belong: in the garbage. 
A senior day-care worker confided to me that, "babies have no business in day care."
