Quote/Comment

Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, Chapter 11, Summary, P 177 The economies of scale which have been part of the economic justification for day care disappear as staff/child ratios are improved towards recommended levels, and day care ceases to be cost-effective, because the "caregiver/child ratio is the key determinant of cost".

Economics
Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, P177 Parents have a right to be informed of all relevant risks (of daycare), and if necessary to be involved in considering the risk-benefit balance for their own infants.
Category = Politics
Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, P179 Most Swedes believe home care is better than the best child care
Sweden, reported to have the world's highest quality child care...have now largely phased it out for infants in the first year...

..more than 80% of Swedes regard it as ideal to care for children at home until they reach the age of three. Professional opinion supports this view.

...It is ill advised for governments to follow a program of early infant child care (daycare) which Sweden has tried, but which is believed by most Swedes to be inferior to home care...
Category = Quality
Early Childcare:  Infants and Nations at Risk by Dr. Peter Cook, 1996, Appendix I, Changing Modes of Chldrearing:  The Empathic or Trusting, Cooperative Approach and Distrustful, Authoritarian Childrearing, P186 In 1963 Betty Friedan, in "The Feminine Mystique, described women as being isolated in the "comfortable concentration camp" of their suburban homes.
I wonder how she would react to a suggestion that a generation later infants are isolated from their families in the uncomfortable concentration camps of their child care centres?
