No, but for dual WOHParents, summer camp can serve the same function as daycare. that may not be the purpose for the existence of the camp, and it may not be the primary benefit a child/family receives, but it does, in many cases, replace daycare in summer months.

She has, but I think it's a dirty family secret.

Maybe "politically correct" was meant, in the sense that people say this (daycare = school) to make themselves feel better about daycare and to make daycare seem more acceptable. But your guess is as good as mine.

I have always thought of "daycare" as a stand alone facility that provides care to children from 0-5 during the day.
