Emptying the Nest: 
The Clinton Child Care Agenda by Charmaine Crouse Yoest, Family Research Council, frc.org, 1998,
pg. 10-11
On the opposite end of the spectrum from the relatively benign otitis media is the cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection, which is also closely, and dangerously, associated with day care.  Children attending day care are infected with CMV two to three times more often than children at home.  In fact, one study reported in Pediatrics found that half of the children in large day care centers have active CMV infections.

This is a serious problem because CMV is the leading cause of congenital infection worldwide; approximately 10 percent of infants infected prenatally have significant complications.  Unfortunately, controlling the spread of the infection is very difficult because children who contract the virus are asymptomatic* 95 percent of the time.  As a result, in addition to the threat posed to child care workers, children can unwittingly carry the virus home and spread it to their unborn siblings through their mothers.
*asymptomatic - showing no evidence or symptoms of disease

There is also some concern among researchers that increased usage of day care may be contributing to the alarming rise in asthma cases in the last decade.

Children must be exposed to many germs eventually, but their susceptibility to serious illness decreases with age.  Pneumonia in a five-year-old is an entirely different proposition from pneumonia in an infant.  As a result, the health literature does document some sad and troubling cases of transmission of tuberculosis, and fatal cases of pneumonia and invasive group A streptococcus among infants directly attributable to day care attendance.

 pg. 13
...we would do well to approach the issue of child care with an eye to the Law of Unintended Consequences. As the federal government continues increasing its subsidy of non-parental care of infants and toddlers, what will happen? The data on day care usage are already providing evidence that the child care market is responding predictably with a shift toward the subsidized product (i.e., daycare).

 pg. 13
Federal intervention in child care for American children should be guided by what parents want and what children need. At the very least, the government should be neutral and avoid social engineering that skews the child care market by emphasizing and underwriting commercial, institutional and bureaucratized (daycare) solutions.

Emptying the Nest: 
The Clinton Child Care Agenda by Charmaine Yoest, Family Research Council, frc.org, 1998,
 pg. 13
What do parents want? They want to care for their own children. Yet our federal policy underwrites only paid child care. What do children need? Children cannot speak for themselves, but we know what they need. They need enduring relationships with people who are crazy about them. Yet our federal policy prefers the care of hired strangers (in daycare).
