Rant and Musings on Daycare, Feminism and the Concept of "Choice",
A Muslim Mother's Thoughts blog, 5-Jan-05

I do not for a moment however accept the argument that going to daycare is preferable for a child and I do not accept the myth propagated by the child care industry that child care is an enriching place for children, and herein lies my complaint for today:
I have long been irritated by the names they try to give daycare centers, many of which are chain operations or are housed in the most awful looking facilities
I think that enough has been written and documented in the media regarding the lack of “quality” childcare in the US and the microscopically small number of centers with high ratings to know that the vast majority of daycares are not sophisticated centers for training young minds nor are they warm, fuzzy home-like environments full of caring people who will treat your child like you would. But man, they sure try to convince us of that myth with the ridiculous terms they try to use to replace the phrases “daycare” or “childcare”.
know what these places are doing and I think it’s so tragic. The vast majority of parents clearly do not want to leave their children all day while they go to work. They feel bad about it and in order to make them feel more comfortable about it (daycares) make up these absurd names...

"CONCERNS ABOUT CHILD CARE" by Bill Muehlenberg,, Feb-05
a major 1990 American report found that a higher proportion of children under age one in day care "show anxious-avoidance attachment to their mothers than do home-reared infants". More recent research has found that maternal separation can profoundly affect the brain's biochemistry, with lifelong consequences for growth and mental ability. Commenting on the new research, Mary Carlson of the Harvard Medical School said, "Our findings support clinical research showing that infants cared for in (daycare) institutions grow slowly and have behavioural retardation".

"CONCERNS ABOUT CHILD CARE" by Bill Muehlenberg,, Feb-05
The work of people like John Bowlby, Selma Fraiberg, Robert Karen , Jay Belsky, Ronald Haskins and Mary Ainsworth , to name but a few, has shown a clear connection between extended periods of maternal absence, and lengthy stays in day care (as little as 10 hours a week) for infants, and later developmental problems.

"CONCERNS ABOUT CHILD CARE" by Bill Muehlenberg,, Feb-05
Ernest Foyer, former U.S. commissioner of education, and president of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, has said that children in day care suffer in terms of language skills development. A recent American study of 4000 children found that mothers who return to work soon after giving birth may harm their child's school performance. The study showed that children of mums who work full-time struggled academically compared with those whose mums stayed at home. Other studies have even found that children who spend a lot of time in child care are more likely to join gangs as surrogate families.

"CONCERNS ABOUT CHILD CARE" by Bill Muehlenberg,, Feb-05 An American study published in 2003 found that babies in childcare are more likely to show behavioral problems and low self-control later in life. The study of 17,000 children found that those who had the most problems were those who were in care for more than 30 hours a week and who were in day care before the age of one.

"CONCERNS ABOUT CHILD CARE" by Bill Muehlenberg,, Feb-05 An abundance of studies have made it clear that what babies and toddlers need most is the continuous one-to-one attention of a caregiver. This can rarely be obtained in group care. For one thing, the ratio of children to staff is often 15 to 1, or worse, and secondly, there is a very high turnover rate of staff at day care centres. As one expert put it, "Many childcare youngsters will spend 12,000 hours in care before they reach school, with dozens of different carers - and that's if they stay at one creche!" Thus, no matter how excellent a facility may be, it can never replace a mother's continuous love and attention. Common sense, as well as sociological studies, bear this out.
