Family First on TV3 Sunrise re Daycare Report

3 News 8 Feb 2012
A family lobby group says parents who put their children into daycare are  harming their children’s development and is calling for parents to better  educate themselves on the risks. Family First director Bob McCoskrie says New Zealand has one of the highest  rates of day care in the OECD with 40 percent of children under the age of two  in day care for 24 hours or more per week and a further 20 percent in daycare  for 36 hours or more per week. He says these numbers are unacceptable. “Full time parenting should be a child’s right, especially in those first  couple of years,” Mr McCoskrie said  to Firstline this morning.—Family-First/tabid/423/articleID/242160/Default.aspx#ixzz1ljRMUofS
