10 Things Your Daycare May Not Tell You
by Liza Finlay, www.Todaysparent.com
February 2004
1. The staff-to-child ratio changes and you’re the last to know.
...some experts estimate that breaches of the staff-to-child ratio represent up to one-fifth of all licensing violations. That’s consistent with the experiences of many parents who discover too late that their daycare uses somewhat creative accounting. After spending three days observing one daycare’s practices, (a mother) realized that the one-to-three ratio she was promised was actually more like one-to-five. “The staff had staggered hours,” she says. “One of them came in halfway through the morning and another left early in the afternoon. That upset the ratio dramatically for a good chunk of the day.”

2. The teachers aren’t as qualified as you were told.
When Marie Ellis* of Toronto started with her...neighbourhood caregiver, her then-one-year-old daughter was cared for by an experienced woman with a degree in early childhood education. In recent months, however, Ellis has found her toddler in the care of an untrained assistant. "...no one informed me that she had been hired.", says Ellis.  
"In fact I was never even introduced to her or filled in on her credentials and experience
.”

5. You’re promised daily outdoor time — “weather permitting” — and you find that the weather almost never permits.
“First it was too rainy, then it was too cold — my son rarely seemed to see the light of day,” says (one mom) “There always seemed to be some excuse. One gloriously bright, sunny day I was told the children couldn’t go outside because the roofers were working there.”
Daycares need to have a minimum amount of play area for each child...But how frequently that space is used is left to the discretion of child care providers.

In (this mother's) case, outings were dropped off the centre’s programming entirely — without parents’ knowledge. “My child’s caregiver used to take all the kids to different neighbourhood parks and playgrounds,” she says. “But now they tell me there are just too many kids to properly supervise these outings. I had no idea.”
