Whatever infection older children bring to their homes, younger siblings can get, and bring to day care to share with your children.

In brief: Nanny=more personal
In general, daycares tend to be places where a large group of children stay during the day.
Each state has regulations on the maximum ratio of children to caregivers, however. A nanny is an individual who is selected by a family to care for their child/children. A nanny will typically provide care within a home environment.
