In brief: Sometimes
Some preemies require much more care than full term infants and placing them in day care is a risk for infections they may not fight as well as full term babies.
An example is RSV that can be devastating for a premature infant. You have to consider the amount of care your baby has required prior to coming home and any complications he or she might have had.
