The Day Care Decision
What's Best for You and Your Child
by William & Wendy Dreskin,
1983, p 58-59
Our Decision
The problem was not with our facility; the amount of toys and educational materials far exceeded the supplies of most centers. The problem was not our well-trained, credentialed staff; all staff members were qualified people who really liked and cared about young children. After two years of doing day care, it was obvious that there was a problem inherent in day care itself, a problem that hung like a dark storm over "good" and "bad" day care centers alike. The children were too young to be spending so much time away from their parents.
They were like young birds being forced out of the nest and abandoned by their parents before they could fly, their wings undeveloped, unready to carry them out into the world.
So we decided to close the center. Once we realized day care was harmful to children we could not in good conscience continue to be day care providers, no matter how much people clamored about the need for day care in the community. We had been with the preschool for five years. Our preschool meant a lot to us. It was not an easy decision.

What's Best for You and Your Child
by William & Wendy Dreskin,
1983,  p 68
All forms of group day care significantly increase the exposure of children (to disease) in this age range, with large day care centers being the extreme at one end of the spectrum and day care homes with a limited enrollment lying at the other end.

The Day Care Decision
What's Best for You and Your Child
by William & Wendy Dreskin,
1983,  p 70
Dr. Stephen Hadler, an epidemiologist with the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) in Phoenix, Arizona, who has studied the problem of day care-associated diseases, explains why there is concern about group care:
"Day care centers are a fertile environment for the spread of infectious diseases, especially enterically [intestinally] transmitted diseases. Outbreaks of infections can spread beyond the centers into families and the community.
This represents a major potential problem in public health."
