Quote/Comment

Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, Chapter 7, Child Care in Sweden:  Two studies, P128-129 Implications of Harsman's study for the quality of Swedish child care
...Although Swedish child care may generally be the best in the world, even this best appears to be not good enough for many infants. This is indicated by Harsman's observations of negative day care outcomes in mother attunement, prolonged distress and even depression in infancy, and demonstrated poorer scores on a standardised scale of infant development in comparison with matched controls who were at home with their mothers.
Such direct observations give an important window on what are likely to be the actual experiences of infants in the real world of child care, even when it is labeled "high quality". These are quite different from the pictures usually conjured up by the words high quality child care. While the attempt can be of high quality, the infant's experiences can be quite otherwise.
Category = Behavior, Development, Quality
Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, P129 It bears repeating that the term 'high quality' to describe child care is an adult-given label. But so far as the infant is concerned the use of these words prejudge what is requiring to be proved - that the care labeled in this ways does in fact deliver a high quality experience for the infant. If the Swedes, with their best endeavours have not been able reliably to ensure high quality experiences for their infants, then the chances for infants in countries where the expenditure and effort are less must give grounds for concern.
Category = Politics, Quality
Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, Chapter 8, Some Origins of Love, Violence and Antisocial Tendencies:  The Research of Dr. James Prescott, P136 Prescott says the evidence shows that the best "behavioural vaccine" against depression, social alienation, violence and drug/alcohol abuse and addiction in later life is to carry the newborn and infant on the body of the mother or caretaker.
...Infant day care does not preclude* baby-carrying, but overworked staff are unlikely to welcome such additional duties...
*Preclude = To put a barrier before; hence, to shut out; to hinder; to stop; to impede.
Category = Behavior, Quality
