McHale, Mothering Magazine, Issue 112, May/June 2002 (The Media)...did not discuss how badly infants in daycare centers get sick.  However, another study found that children under two were more likely to be hospitalized for lower respiratory tract illnesses if they were in daycare centers...

Talking about Childcare:  What's the Research Really Say?, by Diane K. McHale, Mothering Magazine, May/June 2002 For ear infections, daycare is a risk factor of "admission to hospital, adenoidectomy, and insertion of a tympanostomy tube.  [In one study] children in daycare had a 50 percent higher chance of repeated ear infections.  In a nine-country study, children in daycare more more likely to have a history of poor hearing, tympanostomy tubes, tonsillectomy, or adenoidectomy."

Concerns about Child Care-Part 1

Mary Carlson of the Harvard Medical School said, "Our findings support clinical research showing that infants cared for in institutions grow slowly and have behavioural retardation".7
The work of people such as John Bowlby, Selma Fraiberg, Robert Karen, Jay Belsky, Ronald Haskins and Mary Ainsworth, to name but a few, has shown a clear connection between extended periods of maternal absence, and lengthy stays in day care (as little as 10 hours a week) for infants, and later developmental problems.

Ernest Foyer, former U.S. commissioner of education, and president of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, has said that children in day care suffer in terms of language skills development. ...Other studies have even found that children who spend a substantial time in child care are more likely to join gangs as surrogate families.

Some Australian researchers have sought to dismiss overseas studies which suggest that child care can have negative consequences for young children. Some Australian studies seem to tone down or explain away findings on any adverse effects on children. Yet they too have to admit that children brought up in long hours of day care are more aggressive, bratty and uncooperative. Even though they try to put a good spin on such findings, and say such brattiness is not a sign of "emotional maladjustment", any teacher or parent will tell you otherwise. (For an excellent analysis of the many shortcomings of this and other studies, see Early Child Care by Peter Cook.) Indeed, other Australian researchers have found that these bratty preschoolers are more likely to grow up to be chronic drink-drivers*. Other Australian studies have found that children do better in school if they have not been in child care.

Those who argue that day care does not harm children should bear the burden of proof.
...if we are not certain about the long-term effects of day care on young children, why unnecessarily put them at risk? Why treat them as guinea pigs?

In addition, a number of studies from here and overseas have shown that there is a much higher risk of physical health problems associated with day care. Colds, diarrhoea, coughs, hepatitis A, respiratory complaints, mumps, measles, influenza, cytomegalovirus, meningitis are some of the medical problems which abound in day care centres.
A Norwegian study found that toddlers who attend day care or nursery school are twice as likely to develop asthma.

And as Patricia Morgan explains, "Affordable care is low-quality care. Universally available high-quality care is achievable nowhere on earth."59
Secondly, day care work is a thankless and underpaid job. To enable day carers* to better perform their tasks, they need all the comforts other workers get; rostered time off, lunch and tea breaks, shift work, vacation time. But this is the Catch 22** situation: the better we make working conditions for the carers, the more we disadvantage the infant! That is, the more flexi-time we give the carer, the less continuous, long-term attention the baby gets from one carer.
*Carer = Daycare Worker
**From its use in the satirical novel by the American author Joseph Heller, the phrase "Catch-22" is common idiomatic usage meaning "a no-win situation"

Day care can never come up to (a mother's) standard. As Leach says, "That vital continuous one-to-one attention can rarely be achieved in group care, however excellent the facility may be. Babies in their first year need one primary adult each, and while that may be inconvenient, it is not very surprising. Human beings do not give birth to litters but almost always to single babies.

And child care experts even concede this point in the choices they make. A 1996 survey of Macquarie University early child care students with experience in day care found that no students said they would put their babies in a child care centre.
