Day care is bad for babies - Biddulph  by Paola Totaro, smh.com.au (Sydney Morning Herald) 18-Mar-06
 
In a new book, Raising Babies - Should under 3s go to Nursery?, (Steven Biddulph) argues that (a) growing international body of work (the results of national and international studies of infants in long day care) combined with neurobiological research clearly suggests that at least during the first two years of life, brain development unfolds at its optimum with one-to-one care...
...Significant among the reams of research are the so-called cortisol studies, which measured the presence of stress hormones in young babies and consistently found these levels to be higher in children in long day care. These have been linked with greater aggression and anxiety found in older children in long day care but are also known to affect the development of a range of neurotransmitters, whose pathways in the brain are still being built. These permanent brain changes are now thought by scientists and psychiatrists to affect the way the child will react to stress, anxiety and negative feelings in later life.

Day care is bad for babies - Biddulph  by Paola Totaro, smh.com.au (Sydney Morning Herald) 18-Mar-06
 
"I had started out as a believer in the ideal of quality nursery care (daycare) and the role it played in allowing women to broaden their lives but the more I saw of the reality of day-care centres and nurseries and the more conversations I had with parents and carers, it became clear to me that the reality never matched the fantasy."
"The best nurseries (daycares) struggle to meet the needs of very young children in a group setting. The worst were negligent, frightening and bleak: a nightmare of bewildered loneliness that was heartbreaking to watch."

Day care is bad for babies - Biddulph  by Paola Totaro, smh.com.au (Sydney Morning Herald) 18-Mar-06
 
"Children at this age - under three - want one thing only: the individual care of their own special person. Even the best run nurseries (daycares) cannot offer this." ...Whether motivated by idealism or corporate greed, (the concept of commercial child care is) aimed to "slot messy and needy young children into the new economic system, while at the same time reassuring us that it is good for them, socially and educationally".
Child care is now so well marketed, he writes, that even parents at home have begun to feel that they might not be as good for their babies as the "professionals".
"The critical, rarely mentioned core of nursery care (daycare) is that our children will be looked after in bulk... 
...Like McDonald's fast food, we can enjoy the convenience of drive-through, ready-made, fast-parenting; through the miracle of mass production."

Day care is bad for babies - Biddulph  by Paola Totaro, smh.com.au (Sydney Morning Herald) 18-Mar-06 "Quality care appropriate to very young children does not exist. It is a fantasy of the glossy magazines. If your heart has been uneasy about these things, it is probably right..."

Tories offer fairer daycare by Charles Moore, canadianvalues.ca, 10-Apr-06 Day-care funding (in Canada) is anticipated to be one of the new parliamentary session's most contentious issues...
The problem afflicting all sides is a general assumption that more day care is desirable...
...What isn't being addressed is whether encouraging more day care is good policy...
In Raising Babies - Should Under Threes Go To Nursery? Biddulph warns that day care used "too much, too early, too long" damages young children's' brain chemistry and negatively affects social and emotional development.
...This is all, of course, politically incorrect in spectacular fashion...
...Biddulph isn't isolated in his critique of day care...
...In his 2003 book Day Care Deception, Brian C. Robertson highlights continuing attempts to cover up or explain away social-science findings that document the risks of over-reliance on non-parental group care for preschool children...
...It begs the question, should governments be actively promoting and funding day care at all?
