Day Care Deception - What the Child Care Establishment Isn't Telling Us, by Brian C. Robertson, Encounter Books, San Francisco, © 2003, page 39 What one analyst has called “caregiver roulette” is endemic in commercial day care, an inherent aspect of the economy of scale* that allows the system to function at all.
*Economies of Scale - These occur when mass producing a good results in lower average cost.  The more of a good you produce, the less it costs for each additional unit.  For example, a plant that produces 1000 cars would be more efficient than a plant producing five cars.

The other element of commercial care that contributes to attachment disorders, according to researchers, is the devastating drop in the sensitivity of caregivers toward individual children in a group care setting.  With recent studies showing that half of all preschoolers in day care are moved to different arrangements in the course of one year, that almost half of all caregivers in day care centers quit their positions each year, and that the staff turnover rate has accelerated sharply over the last decade, these problems are clearly not going away—despite the highest rate of public expenditure on day care in our history.

Dr. Benjamin Spock [the famous pediatrician and child care expert who lived from 1903-1998] (said) “a day nursery…is no good for an infant.  There’s nowhere near enough attention or affection to go around.”  Since children need full-time love and attention in their early years, he argued, it is senseless for parents to “pay other people to do a poorer job of bringing up their children.”

As early as 1974, Developmental Psychology reported that three- and four-year-olds who had been put in day care in their first year of life were more physically and verbally abusive with adults and peers, less cooperative and less tolerant of frustration than their home-reared counterparts.”
