The shocking truth behind daycare at nurseries and creches
by Imogen Willcocks, The Daily Mail (Britain) 6-Mar-08
 
Britain's childcare industry is booming.
Every working day, more than a million parents drop off their precious little cargos at childminders and private nurseries.
All of them do it firm in the belief that those they trust with their babies are highly-qualified, strictly regulated and genuine, caring people.

Terrifyingly, they are wrong. During an eight-month investigation for the BBC1 investigative programme Whistleblower, I uncovered a childcare culture where a new carer's* criminal records and references are never checked, yet they will immediately be left alone with young, vulnerable children.

(The reporter goes on to describe her experiences when she went undercover to work at 4 daycares, from bad to "award-winning")

...I don't yet have children but having seen what I've seen, I can't imagine I'll ever risk putting my own into childcare.

The shocking truth behind daycare at nurseries and creches
by Imogen Willcocks, The Daily Mail (Britain) 6-Mar-08
I was initially alerted to the scandal by an inspector for Ofsted (the government agency that regulates childminders and nurseries). She said that, as a parent of two children and having inspected 700 nurseries with her colleagues, she had found only five that she would have let her own children attend.

She also said that Ofsted inspection reports - the only safeguards that parents have to go on when choosing a nursery - aren't worth the paper they're printed on.

Ethics@Work: More equitable ways of subsidizing child care
by ASHER MEIR , The Jerusalem Post (Israel) 17-Apr-08

The tax benefit (recognizing child care expenses as a deductible business expense) will only affect higher-income women, most of them married to high-earning men, and most of them can "afford" to work in any case. This is a tax break for the upper middle class (perhaps not coincidentally the class most judges belong to).

Ethics@Work: More equitable ways of subsidizing child care
by ASHER MEIR , The Jerusalem Post (Israel) 17-Apr-08

If you can't afford to hire someone else to take care of your children so that you can take another job, then evidently you are more productive in child care than you would be in your other job.
We pointed out in another column that "working mother" is a redundancy. Every mother works, it's just that some work only at home while others have two workplaces. I don't see any compelling reason for the tax code to give preference to one kind of work (the kind that takes place out of the home) over another (the kind that takes place in the home).

Putting babies in childcare 'makes them fatter', by Laura Clout, The Telegraph (Britain), 7-Jul-08 Babies who are placed in childcare are fatter than those cared for only by their parents, research (by Juhee Kim at the University of Illinois and Karen Peterson at the Harvard School of Public Health) suggests.
...It is thought children placed in childcare before they are three months old are less likely to have been breastfed and more likely to have been weaned onto solid foods at an earlier age.

Day care babies gain more weight, by Megan Rauscher, The Mercury (Australia), 23-Jul-08

Infants cared for by someone other than mum or dad are more apt to be exposed to "unfavorable" feeding practices and to gain more weight during their first year of life, a new study shows, which could contribute to childhood weight problems.
...The researchers found that the...infants placed in child care when they were younger than 3 months of age were less likely to have been breastfed and were more likely to begin to eat solid foods earlier than infants cared for by their parents.

Childcare for babies is 'abuse', says author Mem Fox, The Sunday Mail (Queensland, Australia), 31-Aug-08 Putting babies into childcare is a form of abuse, leading children's author Mem Fox claims.
Ms. Fox...author of the best-selling Possum Magic, said she believed society would look back on the trend of allowing babies only a few weeks old  to be put into childcare and wonder, "How could we have allowed that child abuse to happen?"
