if, that is, the parents/guardians aren't working full time or in school. i know, somehow, that having a negative opinion about this is 'judgmental' but regardless- what are your thoughts?
i work in childcare, with infants, and one of our infants is always there even though mom is available at a moment's notice whenever he gets a fever and has to go home. she shows up in sweats and a big t-shirt. her ass wasn't at work. not to mention, when she went out of town for a week, she drove her sister up here and rather than have her sister watch the baby, she just had the sister drop off and pick him up from daycare.
i just don't get it... infants do not NEED to be in daycare in my opinion, if there is another option. i fully understand if work/school is a must and the baby has to go of course. but why would you have a baby just to turn around and throw it in daycare for 10 hours a day when you don't have any other responsibilities?

I personally think that an infant should not be in daycare if it's not necessary. Especially since they are exposed to so many illnesses in day care. And, with both of my children, I either did not work or worked at home so, they would not have to be in day care.
