Doing Time: What It Really Means To Grow Up In Daycare
by May Saubier, ©2012
What else do children need to learn in order to “socialize” in the daycare environment? They need to learn they will not receive much attention unless they are demanding it. Again, this is not meant to blame daycare workers...
Therefore, the child who is screaming, throwing a temper tantrum, hanging onto a staff member’s legs, or continually crying will receive what he or she needs.

Biting
One of the most offensive results of daycare socialization is the survival skill called biting. Biting begins in the infant room and usually remains a problem throughout the toddler period.
Would any adult tolerate living their lives in this manner? Imagine going off to work, knowing that the man sitting in the next office or cubicle might come over and bite your leg or arm. This is what our babies and toddlers are exposed to in daycare.

Parents sometimes were angry at the directors and “teachers” for not disclosing who had bitten their child. It should also be mentioned that if a bitter has any type of contagious medical condition, this information would not necessarily be shared with the parents whose child had just gotten bitten.
“Children with blood-borne viruses have the right to attend child care without discrimination. Child care staff, physicians, and parents of other children who become aware of their diagnoses have an ethical obligation to respect the privacy of this information”

...biting really works well for the biter. All day long, the child is forced to “socialize” with other children who unintentionally or intentionally pull her hair, take her food away from her, push her, cry and scream in her space, and biting is a surefire way to get everyone to move out of the way.

...nothing even came closed to preparing me or my immune system for the level of illness circulating the daycare. This bombardment of germs and consequential illness is known by many as “daycare syndrome”. Children in
daycare are continually sick with a variety of ailments and so are their caretakers.

“Daycare Nose”
Parents and staff members often refer to a specific component of “daycare syndrome”, whereby children’s noses continually run, as “daycare nose”. This term is used casually and lightheartedly. Most children in daycare have a cold or sinus infection that never really goes away

Why were the babies sick all of the time? Once one baby enters daycare with a cold, it will be passed around and around the room. When parents take tours of daycare centers, cleanliness is always a hot topic. They want to know if toys are sterilized at the end of each day, if diaper stations and cribs are wiped down with a bleach solution, etc. The answer to these questions was always ... “yes” from the directors. Unfortunately, every effort in the world will not keep a little room clean of germs when six (but usually many more) babies are living out their lives within it.

Sterilizing Toys – Why It Doesn’t Prevent Sickness
In the morning, my first job in the infant room was to take all of the little toys that babies love to chew and suck on and deposit them in the center’s sterilizer to be sanitized. I mentioned early in the book that the places I have worked have been of high quality. This is a direct example. Many centers are lacking this sterilization device.

Babies need toys. Babies put toys in their mouths. Daycare workers cannot sterilize each toy after each baby has placed it in their mouth, nor can they designate several toys to each baby to be used throughout the day. The result is an obvious one. The babies were in continual contact with each others’ saliva and nose excretions through the toys shared within the room. It is true the toys were sterilized in the evening to begin the next day germ free. This does not prohibit the spreading of illness even with a thorough sanitation routine in place.
