Emptying the Nest: 
The Clinton Child Care Agenda by Charmaine Crouse Yoest, Family Research Council, frc.org, 1998,
pg. 10
"Children in day care...are responsible for many community disease outbreaks," writes a group of family physicians.  For example, 40 percent of community outbreaks of the serious infection hepatitis A can be traced to day care centers.  Among child care centers who admit children under the age of two, 50 percent experience outbreaks of hepatitis A.  This infection has a 28-day incubation period and is often asymptomatic* in young children.
asymptomatic - shows no evidence or symptoms of disease
Category = Disease

The Clinton Child Care Agenda by Charmaine Crouse Yoest, Family Research Council, frc.org, 1998,
pg. 10
The health concern that is most prevalent in day care centers is otitis media, or ear infections.  This is one common problem that the medical literature clearly and convincingly associates with increased day care attendance.  One study of 244 children found that 21 percent of the children in day care had to be hospitalized for myringotomy and tube placement as a result of ear infections compared to only 3 percent of the children cared for at home.  Another study analyzed the tympanograms of three-year-olds and found that only 52 percent of children attending day care had normal tympanograms compared to 74 percent of those cared for at home.
Although some dismiss ear infections as garden-variety childhood illnesses that are to be expected, the increase in their occurrence associated with child care should not be viewed too sanguinely*.  In keeping with a risk factor conception of day care, it appears that repeated ear infections may be another factor that is detrimental to a child's healthy emotional development.
*sanguinely - cheerfully

pg. 10
Epidemiologists say (the rise of antibiotic-resistant organisms) is a large and growing problem:

[E]scalated use of child-care facilities has had a marked effect on the epidemiology of infectious diseases in young children.  Children attending child care are at high risk for respiratory and gastronintestinal tract illnesses.  The high prevalence of infectious diseases in the child care setting is accompanied by high usage of antibiotics, which in turn has resulted in spread of antibiotic-resistant organisms.
