Day Care Diseases,
by  Dennis Clements, MD, PhD, Chief Medical Officer of Duke Children's Hospital, dukehealth.org Updated 3-Aug-06



 

Why infections spread in day care

1).  ...Most important is that day care centers, by their nature, cluster individuals who are susceptible to diseases. At young ages children have immature and inexperienced immune systems, so they acquire virtually every virus they are exposed to. As a result, when an infection is introduced into the day care setting it usually makes the rounds of the entire room...

2).  Another significant factor in day care infections is the close physical contact among the participants—both children and adults. Infections that spread by the oral route can easily pass from individual to individual as different babies teethe on the same toys or as toddlers suck their thumbs after touching contaminated surfaces.

3).  Once an infection appears, transmission can be extremely rapid.

4).  Generally infants and toddlers in day care have a new viral infection about every three to four weeks and manifest symptoms of illness about every two months. This repeated acquisition of infections may not allow the child’s normal physiology to return to a steady state, making some children prone to chronic infections...

5).  Finally, the frequency of illness and possible secondary bacterial complications make children in day care much more likely to have had antibiotic treatment. This raises the likelihood that antibiotic-resistant organisms will emerge, complicating treatment.

Governor Teaches a Preschool Lesson: Romney says “no” to universal bad news.
by Carrie Lukas, National Review Online, nationalreview.com  11-Aug-06 
...it’s easy to see why many politicians view universal (day-care) preschool as a political winner. Voters picture smiling four-year-olds clasping lunchboxes, heading off to bright colored classrooms to begin a life-time of learning.
...But universal preschool doesn’t live up to its promise, either as a matter of policy or of politics. While proponents boast of preschool as having a dramatic affect on student outcomes, there is scant evidence to support this claim...
...Moreover, some studies have shown that preschool — even as little as three hours a day or fifteen hours per week — can actually impede these children’s social development.

Governor Teaches a Preschool Lesson: Romney says “no” to universal bad news.
by Carrie Lukas, National Review Online, nationalreview.com  11-Aug-06 
Parents are not clamoring for government-provide preschool or daycare programs. In fact, most parents believe that children are better off spending more time at home with parents than in organized daycare facilities.
Universal preschool is not the way to help parents realize that goal. These programs are expensive...
...Families would see their tax burden rising, making it more difficult to make ends meet on just one salary.
Policymakers should ...(oppose) universal preschool. It may sound like a political winner, but when government expands, we all lose.
