Child Care Concerns by Bill Muehlenberg, The Australian Family, March 2001, p.19

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. One Australian study for example found that "children prone to respiratory illness were more likely to be users of child care centres or creches than the children who were not prone". Another study of 23 long-day-care centres in Canberra found that on average children there suffered six more respiratory infections a year compared with children not in care. Moreover, some of these infections can be passed on to the parents. Other studies from here and overseas have found that the diets of children in long day care can be missing out on essential nutrients. A Norwegian study found that toddlers who attend day care or nursery school are twice as likely to develop asthma.

Other studies have found that not only are children in day care at greater risk of disease, they are also at greater risk of being abused. A recent study conducted for the National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect in America found that there is a "substantial" risk of sexual abuse in day care centres. In another study, 75 per cent of sexual abuse victims in Michigan were day care children. Children can also be neglected in child care centres. Numerous complaints have been made about babies and toddlers being left alone in child care centres. In other instances, children have been found to have wandered off from child care centres.

An abundance of studies have made it clear that what babies and toddlers need most is the continuous one-to-one attention of a caregiver. This can rarely be obtained in group care. For one thing, the ratio of children to staff is often 15 to 1, or worse, and secondly, there is a very high turnover rate of staff at day care centres. As one expert put it, "Many childcare youngsters will spend 12,000 hours in care before they reach school, with dozens of different carers* - and that's if they stay at one creche!"

"While I - and most of my friends - were saying our minds were `too good' to stay at home and raise our children, none of us ever asked the question, `Then what sort of minds should be raising our children - minds that were not very good?'
