Mother in the Middle Searching for Peace in the Mommy Wars, by Deborah Shaw Lewis &
Charmaine Crouse Yoest
1996, p. 156
...members of the medical community often consider the health effects to be the most serious drawback to group care of children.
Children in day care settings are two to four times more likely to contract infectious disease, as compared to preschool-aged children reared at home.

In an article in Patient Care entitled "Day Care Infections: Children at Risk," the authors stated:
During the first thirty-six months of life...children in day care centers had significantly more infections during each year than children in home care....
Moreover, children in day care had significantly more severe illnesses than children in home care....

According to the authors of an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association, four factors contribute to the transmission of infectious diseases in child day care:
1. Large numbers of children are in close physical contact.
2. Infants and toddlers have poor personal hygiene
3. Young children are susceptible to a variety of infectious organisms.
4. Infected children may be highly contagious before the onset of symptoms, and some infected children remain asymptomatic*.
And of course, day care workers vary greatly in their use of good hygiene.

*Asymptomatic - Presenting no symptoms or evidence of disease.

A few of the articles were downright scary. According to several--including one in the Journal of the American Medical Association and another in Pediatrics--one little-discussed problem is the disturbing prevalence of "cytomegalovirus" (CMV). Pediatrics reported that about half of the children under three years old in large day care centers have active CMV infections. This virus is often asymptomatic* and usually causes nothing worse than minor diarrhea in young children. And yet if these seemingly healthy (or only slightly ill) children transmit the virus to a pregnant woman, it can result in congenital birth defects.
*Asymptomatic - Presenting no symptoms or evidence of disease.
