The Day Care Decision
What's Best for You and Your Child
by William & Wendy Dreskin,
1983, p 73-74
Exposure to Infection is Not Beneficial
Since it is common knowledge that the immune system can produce resistance to a specific agent after exposure, parents often wonder if some exposure is good for their children. This misunderstanding is a holdover from the days prior to the advent of vaccinations, when certain childhood diseases like chicken pox and measles were virtually inevitable. Looking for a silver lining in the cloud of illness, parents comforted themselves with the knowledge that one disease had been checked off the list; at least their child would not get that one again. Today we have vaccines to prevent or lessen the risk of (serious) diseases such as polio, diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, measles, mumps, and rubella. Children can enjoy protection without actually getting sick with the (dangerous) disease.

The Day Care Decision
What's Best for You and Your Child
by William & Wendy Dreskin,
1983, p 77-78
Faced with such an outbreak (of a contagious disease) and the responsibility of protecting the community, health officials (may) consider closing the day care center. But the economic and social impact on parents and day care (business would be) substantial. (The day care director will protest that) "All the parents will think the center is responsible. We will lose all our enrollment!"  Parents operating on tight schedules (would not be) exactly overjoyed at the prospect either.
(To make matters worse) This becomes part of a widening circle of problems in controlling the initial outbreak, according to a 1981 CDC (Centers of Disease Control) report. Infected children who are asymptomatic* are put in other centers due to a closing or because of parents' concern that their child might become infected in a center that obviously has a problem. This, of course, spreads the disease to children in the new center, day care workers, and families, and so it goes, on and on.
*asymptomatic - showing no symptoms of disease

The Day Care Decision
What's Best for You and Your Child
by William & Wendy Dreskin,
1983,  p 79
Exposure (to disease) works both ways between day care workers and children, with the possibility of (spreading) to the children's families and to the day care worker's family as well. Day care workers typically receive very low pay, have inadequate sick leave, and have no health coverage provided. The result is that sick (contagious) staff members will frequently show up for work at the center.
