Abstract

Children attending day care centres are more open to the risk of infectionand repeated infection than children who are looked after at home. Most infections involve the upper respiratory tract; they are usually benign, bur it is also possible that they have repercussions on the child's health. Furthermore, they lead to the repeated prescription of antibiotics, and thus significant expense to the community. preventive measures should be taken, in the first place by respecting the basic rules of hygiene, which sometimesappear to have been overlooked. Infectious risk is influenced by the type of day care structure, is higher during the initial attendance period, and is maximum in the smaller day care centres. the younger the child's age at the first infection, the greater the risk of he or she being exposed to recurrent infectious episodes. these factors should be taken into account whendetermining the type of structure to be built, with family day care centres being given priority, as should the age factor: the age for admission to the centre should be raised as a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of infection at an early age. Due to the excessive use of antibiotics, children attending day care centres are at high risk of acquiring and spreading penicillin-resistant pneumococcal strains. A more judicious use of antibiotics for seasonally-occurring upper respiratory tract infections, most ofthem of viral origin, could contribute to reducing the incidence and extent of this phenomenon.
