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 5
The pace of an individual child's day, the sorrow or wonder, all delicacy of feeling and reflection, is lost in the steamroller of the curriculum-driven day.  Story after story, rhyme after rhyme. line up, run outside, potty, snack; through it all, one senses most of these children are quite alone...They must long for a gentle moment, for just a second of eye-to-eye soulful connection, but how can these besieged caregivers provide that?
The workers are here on overlapping shifts from six in the morning to six at night or even longer.  The best centers take pride in their one-to-four- ratio of providers to children, but this ratio still means that infants interact with several caregivers during the day.  The mystery of an individual child's unfolding inner experience, the miracle of time with an adult who loves you is replaced with the relentless cheerfulness that has led so many of us to hate Barney*
* Barney -- Obnoxious 6-ft tall purple dinosaur character on children's TV show by same name that debuted in 1988.

Whatever happened to rocking chairs, whispered songs, soft blankets, and dim lights?  Are we just arguing aesthetics?  Or is this the Brave New World*?  One day I observed a caregiver cradling a baby horizontally at her waist, swinging her gently in an attempt to induce sleep.  The overhead fluorescent fixtures, the cacophony of other toddlers, the swaddling in a blanket discarded a moment ago by someone else--somehow it didn't seem conducive to slumber.  As she stood rocking in the midst of the bright noisy room, the caregiver looked at me ruefully and said, "She's fighting it!"  And well she should.
*Brave New World -- A. Huxley's horrific science fiction novel's vision of the future, published in 1932
