The illnesses and infections rampant in the group care setting range from mild to very serious.  Infants in day care, for instance, have almost twice the rate of inner ear infections as infants raised at home.  The incidence of respiratory illness is also much higher in day care centers: 100 percent higher for infants, and 25 to 50 percent higher for older preschoolers than for their counterparts at home.
For one respiratory illness—pneumococcal disease—the risk of infection is 36 times higher among children under two in day care than it is among children cared for in the home.
The incidence of hemophilus influenza type B is twelve times higher for children in day care; infection rates for giardiasis (a type of diarrhea)  fifteen to twenty times higher.
