I quit my job as a daycare worker just last week. I was in a large child care facility, that was supposed to be one of the best in our city. We even had 130 families on the waiting list. I took my son there with me...within the first couple of weeks he had two ear infections, bronchitis, and a constant cold. I also (got sick).
How wrong I was to think that this was a good place for my child. He repeatedly came home in diapers that were not his, and was given medicine and diaper rash cream that was not his. The children are constantly sick, and were not given positive attention.
Children were left to cry out their problems and put in "time out" because they missed their moms. The turnover rate in this center is Very Very High. Most of the workers were teenagers who had just gotten out of school, and needed a paycheck. No one really loved those children.
There is no way I would ever put my son in day care again, and I sure would not recommend it to any one (else) either.

E-mail to this site from Brytte, "From a former daycare employee", 3-Jan-06 I love your website, I have not seen anything like it on the Internet. In my experience it is dangerous to criticize daycare as you will get your head bitten off!
I often hear people tout the benefits of children in daycare getting "strong immune systems" from getting sick so much as babies. Well, let me tell you, you cannot get immune to lice, scabies, or pink eye.
...(After working at several other daycares, I) got a job as an aide in a very expensive and prestigious daycare....What I couldn't help but notice though, is that the children in that daycare screamed and sobbed when their parents dropped them off just like the other daycares

I have done Daycare in my home...it may sound ironic but I agree with a lot of the views on your site.
I feel sorry for the kids that are at my house from 7am to 6pm on the dot.
...I try to show love to the kids that I watch, but when you have 4-6 of them...it can be hard.
I would NEVER put my own kids in daycare. Daycare centers especially are terrible in my opinion. I have heard horror stories...

E-mail to this site from Mary M., "I am a Daycare worker", 2-Feb-06 ...it breaks my heart to see that our country is headed for full-time daycare for all children whether their parents want it or not.
Thanks for your website.

As an older degreed daycare teacher, it breaks my hear to see what's happening to these children. It IS ALL ABOUT MONEY for many daycare "chains". Children are sad & scared when a parent leaves them. They (become) angry, hostile, aggressive...

E-mail to this site from Ingrid B., "Your site is terrific! Thank You!", 22-Feb-06 I have just found your site and I want to thank you heartily for having the courage to have it...I have been looking for (someone like) you for years!
I fully agree with everything that has been said on this site regarding the daycare environment and how it is not a substitute for parental care.
I am a firm believer in the old saying, "If you give your child to someone else to raise, you will have someone else's child."
Parents are never told their child (has been) inconsolable (all day)...the standard report given is that the child only cried a "short time" after the parent left and "just started" when the parent arrived.
...the school I am currently employed at is considered top-notch...Yet I would never allow my child or grandchild to attend...!

E-mail to this site from Kelly Jo M., "wow", 27-Feb-06 I just happened to stumble onto your website and it is all true. I recently quit working at a day care because of the low pay, back-breaking work, high (Staff/Child) ratios....
Do what you can so that your child won't have to go to day care.

Though your site is good, it is not strong enough in my opinion. I worked as a daycare evaluator for years... with a four-year degree in Child Development.
E-mail to this site from Tara C., "busy mom here!", 16-Mar-06

In my early 20's I worked in daycares centers. Several of them, trying to find one that was a good one. HA!...
Your child is NOT safe there!
(I saw) children being slung from one class to another to meet their ratio requirements.
And oh yeah, the directors know your car! (They'll fix the problems) just in time for you to walk in and pick (your kids) up.
Daycare centers are a joke! Your child gets little to no attention.
