Children need more love and protection at early ages than a stranger can give to them, especially a stranger with a room full of children or babies. Young children are much better off spending time with their family and loved ones, people they can feel safe and secure around. They have a better chance of being taken care of as well.
I do not think that early childhood should only be spent at home with family members instead of school. I think that it is important for children to spend some of their childhood in school because it helps to teach them important social skills early in their lives and childhoods.
Children should go to school as early as possible. Early childhood education is good for the child. Children can go to school for half-days and spend the other half at home with their family. Both the family and the school are important, one does not need to exclude the other.
No, early childhood should not be spent at home with family members instead of in school, because there is more than one way to skin a cat, or in this case to raise a child. If a parent has to work, the child will be just fine staying with a day care provider.
