Doing Time: What It Really Means To Grow Up In Daycare

Chapter 9 – NAPTIME
Naptime is the most blatant example of how a daycare center is not a home. When a child is on a playground or eating a snack at a picnic table, one can at least try and pretend that it is all right to be at “school” at the age of fifteen months. When naptime rolls around, it is almost impossible to keep up the façade. When looking in upon rows of cots, mats, and porta-cribs it becomes clear that a daycare center is actually not a home and more closely resembles a childhood which has been caged and institutionalized.

Being an Easy Baby/ Child is a Bad Thing
When there are dozens of children to care for, the squeaky wheel will get the grease. Sometimes parents believe their baby or child will do well in daycare because they are easy, loving, agreeable, quiet, etc. I want to tell parents that being agreeable is going to make daycare harder on these types of children. The baby who screams will be held. The baby who is happy sitting in a bouncy seat will likely sit there quite a while.

Children Do Not Learn To Socialize In Daycare
From the many hours, weeks and months I have spent in daycare centers, I believe very strongly that children do not learn positive socializing skills while in daycare. I had a teacher colleague once tell me she would be returning to work shortly and placing her 10 month old boy in daycare. She did not want him placed in the infant room and was fighting to have him placed in the toddler room so that he would have role models to look up to and children to learn from. I wanted to tell her that her son would indeed learn a lot in the toddler room but it would not be positive. He would learn to hit and bite and fight for toys.

Children do not learn socializing while spending all workday long surrounded by many other little ones. Children learn manners, the alphabet and early literacy skills from other adults. They learn to share and take turns and play nicely with their siblings or in small groups during closely supervised play dates. Adults are in short supply in daycare and sibling interaction is very often limited. Parents should never feel they are denying their children the chance to socialize by avoiding child care.

I hear people say they wish they could get a dog but cannot since they travel or work too much. It is rare to hear people give children the same consideration.
