About this title

Synopsis:

On the basis of her own research and a complete review of the most recent daycare studies, Alison Clarke-Stewart concludes that good daycare definitely does not impair the child's development either emotionally or intellectually. Fears that daycare children will fail to develop proper parental attachments and will cling instead to their peers are unfounded; so too are fears that mental growth will be slowed. In fact, there is some evidence that social and intellectual development can be facilitated in good daycare environments. The real question is just what these environments are made of, and here Daycare provides a complete discussion of the necessary ingredients, including a checklist that parents can use to make their own evaluation of any daycare arrangement. This is a book that covers all the practical problems daycare parents must face and suggests ways to solve them that are based not on psychological theory or political conviction but on the facts as we now know them.

From the Back Cover:

There is more childcare available and more parents are using it, but it is not of higher quality and it is not more affordable. Psychologists are still asking whether children should be in daycare at all--today the particular concern is for young infants--and parents are still having trouble finding high-quality services. These problems will not be resolved anytime soon. There must be a concerted effort to educate all Americans--those in positions of power as well as those with young children--about the importance of good daycare. This book is dedicated to that effort.
