Mother in the Middle Searching for Peace in the Mommy Wars, by Deborah Shaw Lewis &
Charmaine Crouse Yoest
1996, p. 142
I have spent more than two decades in the field of early childhood education since I left that day-care center. During that time, I have directed, taught in, observed, and evaluated a wide variety of other day-care programs. None have looked as bad as that first center where I worked. However, I remind myself, even that day-care looked good to the people who didn't work there every day.

Many day-care centers, like the one I later directed, did everything to meet the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) standards. But I have rarely seen a day-care center where children get enough adult attention. Or where children had their needs fully met. Even in good day care situations, children are often competing for the attention and affection of the adults there.

We spend more and more money on day care. The (U.S.) government subsidy of the child care market has increased from $8 million in 1965 to $7 billion in 1990 (an 875-fold increase). Consumer expenditures for child care have increased over that time frame from $4.6 billion to $20.5 billion (a 4.5-fold increase).

A 1995 newspaper headline over a nationally distributed wire service article stated, "Day Care Often Dismal, Study Concludes."
That newspaper article surprised us.
After all, with our experience and research for this book, we knew how serious the day-care crisis had become. No, what seemed surprising was that the mainstream press was talking about the real issues in day care.

The study itself was titled "Cost, Quality, and Child Outcomes in Child Care Centers" and was conducted by researchers at the University of Colorado at Denver, UCLA, the University of North Carolina, and Yale.
These researchers concluded, "The level of quality at most U.S. child care centers, especially in infant-toddler rooms, does not meet children's needs for health, safety, warm relationships, and learning." The study also found that most child care is "sufficiently poor to interfere with children's emotional and intellectual development."
This was hardly news to anyone in the field of early childhood education.
