Two Studies Link Child Care to Behavior Problems by Susan Gilbert, The New York Times, 16-Jul-03 The other study found that in children younger than 3, levels of cortisol, a hormone associated with stress, rose in the afternoon during full days they spent in day care, but fell as the hours passed on days they spent at home. This study's researchers, from the Institute of Child Development of the University of Minnesota, had earlier found the same pattern in 3- and 4-year-olds.

Two Studies Link Child Care to Behavior Problems by Susan Gilbert, The New York Times, 16-Jul-03 The study, which began in 1991, found that the more hours the children spent in child care, the higher the incidence of problem behavior and the greater its severity.
Over all, about 17 percent of the children had above-average levels of problem behavior like disobedience and overassertiveness.
Indeed, the study found that the time spent in child care was linked more strongly with children's behavior than was the quality of care.

Two Studies Link Child Care to Behavior Problems by Susan Gilbert, The New York Times, 16-Jul-03 Susan C. Crockenberg, a professor of psychology at the University of Vermont, cited other research concluding that boys were more vulnerable than girls to negative effects of child care.

The Dangers of Day Care by Jay Belsky, The Wall Street Journal, 16-Jul-03 Contrary to the expectations (and desires) of many in the field, the NICHD study shows that the more time children spend in day care arrangements before the are 4 1/2 years old the more aggression, disobedience and conflict with adults they manifest at 54 months of age and in kindergarten. These patterns remain even after taking into account multiple features of children's families, as well as the quality and type of day care that children experienced. Worse, spending a lot of time in care predicted not jus t more assertive or independent behavior, but more truly aggressive and disobedient behavior, as well.

Not that you'd know any of this from reading the NICHD's press release or listening to many of the commentators.

Nurseries are safe and secure - but are they bad for your baby?
by Rebecca Abrams,

, (UK)

It was an eye-opening experience.  Or perhaps I should say an eye-shutting one, for it didn't make pleasant viewing.
In the centre of the room, a five-month-old baby was crying with frustration.  Stranded on his back, he couldn't yet turn over by himself.  In the corner, a little girl of about seven months sat and stared into the middle distance.  She made no demands for attention and got none.
Then there was the boy of nearly one, picked up like a sack of Pampers and carted off to be changed.  Clothes removed, bottom wiped, new nappy (diaper) put on in three minutes flat.  All this was done with exemplary efficiency - all done without a single word or smile from the young woman doing the changing, the entire operation carried out as impersonally as if she'd been loading the dishwasher.
This was no Romanian orphanage*, but the baby room of a brand new, beautifully appointed private nursery (daycare) in an affluent suburb in the south of England, charmingly located amid majestic chestnut trees.  Highly educated adults fight for places here.  To stand a chance of getting in, they put their child's name down long before the birth.
The quotidian** neglect I witnessed may not be typical of all nurseries (daycares), but certainly isn't exceptional either.  Researchers on one recent British-based study were so distressed by their observations of some baby rooms in day nurseries (daycares) they needed debriefing sessions afterwards.
*Communist dictator, Nicolae Ceausescu's Romanian orphanages were state-run child factories designed to produce compliant subjects for the Romanian military.  No consideration was ever given to the developmental needs of the children.  Studies showed that the orphans, sometimes lying quietly and unattended for 18 to 20 hours a day, were severely socially, emotionally and developmentally delayed.

...There is a rapidly growing body of research that suggests that nurseries (daycares) may well be the least desirable choice of childcare for children under two, especially for babies.
