​Young children are more likely to suffer from communicable illnesses because their immune systems are still developing. Children in day care are in close contact with each other, making it easy for illnesses to spread. A clean day care and work practices that help stop the spread of disease are important in child care centers. Child daycare facilities are inspected twice a year.
Check out the current sanitation status of your child's daycare facility.
