I agree with you. No one will love and care for your child as you would. That's why we never placed our children in daycare...
Two years ago, I worked for a year in a Preschool facility and had to quit because of the horrors I witnessed.

Your website is awesome.
...I am currently working at a daycare. I know, I know, I'm trying to get out - I saw the name ...and figured they really were an "early childhood development center".
Everything you think you know about daycare...it's even worse
. I am in a room with twelve 2-1/2 to 3-year-olds all day. I can honestly say that EVERY SINGLE PARENT has no clue about what's going on in my class... Oh sure, they read the "dailies" and buy only the best diaper cream, but these children are so obviously craving attention, it's sad.

"Personal experience from an ex-daycare worker"
 
Today was my last day of working at a day care after seven long years. Your site is very accurate and it tells the truth about how horrible many large centers are.
We had a huge roach problem and the owner refused to hire an exterminator we even saw roaches crawling in the sandbox and on the countertops.
Children with lice were allowed to come into the center and were not sent home.
Workers would leave children unattended on changing tables and not sanitize the toys at naptime.
One toddler was accidentally left outside for a whole half hour in sweltering heat and nobody noticed it. I was the one who found the child on my lunch break and the owner told me not to tell anybody about it.

These are just a few incidents that occurred on a regular basis. I thought I was helping children by staying and trying to make things better but it turns out that it is impossible when the owner doesn't care and can't even keep the rooms in ratio.

Thank you for this great site -- it gave me the courage to get away from that awful place and report them to the licensing department :) You are welcome to use this letter to help parents realize how harmful daycares really are.

"Message from Lisa B"
When I was getting my teaching certificate, I had to observe all day for two weeks at the daycare which was run by my university. It was supposedly "top notch" and had a waiting list...
I was appalled by what I saw.

Some of the workers looked like they hadn't taken a bath or washed their hair in a week!
(I can't imagine hiring someone to care for children who is not physically clean.)

...One child cried for 15 minutes after his mother dropped him off. I timed it with my watch! 
I couldn't help but think, "What kind of emotional effect does this have on the other children who are forced to listen to this? I know it's driving me crazy, what about how they must feel?"

In one room, the "workers" huddled together in one corner, while the children were way over on the other side of the room entertaining themselves. When one of the little children was too slow to do something, the "worker" said to him, "What are you waiting for, Christmas?"

...I wrote all this in my report to my "teachers." They gave me a "B" for my final grade because I refused to say something positive about the daycare. Even now, six years later, I'm like, "What did you want me to do, lie?" I believe in "calling it like it is."
