E-mail to this site from Natalie W., "LOVE IT!!!!!, 16-Jan-08

As a former day care "teacher" I can tell you everything on your site is 100% accurate, and anyone who disagrees has never worked in daycare or is in complete denial.
...Don't let the various names, labels, and marketing schemes used to fool parents work on you. Day cares are all the same, soul-sucking child prisons. Please put this on your website! I love getting the word out!!!!  Keep it up!

E-mail to this site from Lisa R from NSW, Australia, "Childcare worker -uni trained ECT*", 11-Feb-08

*Early Childhood Teacher

I have been teaching 0-12 year old for 15 years, with 3 years permanent at childcare and preschools.
Amongst the many terrible sicknesses I endured all the time, and no one could care less-kids were allowed to daycare very sick, including whooping cough... Gastro bugs ALL the time, to name but a few.
...Many children I have observed 'cut themselves off emotionally' to cope with the environment of institutionalisation, multiple children with poor social skills, and many other serious things. There is no privacy at all, and many will experience multiple carers.
Hormones released during mother/father-child/baby bonding are not developed, and thus many of the children have poor cognitive, language and math skills - we nickname them 'vegebrains'. They've literally cut their brain functioning just to cope day-to-day.

E-mail to this site from Kim W, "Used to be a daycare worker",
20-Feb-08
I read this site and it is so true. I worked at a daycare and the manager at the time used to have her toddler granddaughter there and spent the majority of the time with her while getting after other kids if they got too close to her "baby." It is true, I could not love those children like I loved my own, but felt so sorry for them.
I wish every parent could read this webpage.

E-mail to this site from Rachel N., "Have I Been Brainwashed Too?", 25-Feb-08 I am currently employed part time by a local church's "Child Development Ministry" (referred to as the CDM by employees).
When I stumbled upon this website, I was defensive at first but slowly started to admit the truth.
I have been working at this center for less than 2 months, and I have yet to work a full week because of illness.
Before working here, I hadn't taken or needed antibiotics or cold medicine in over 5 years.
Since starting this job at the center...I have had severe diarrhea & vomiting twice...I have had an ear infection and sinus infection, and I currently have a bacterial infection in my blood that can not be identified and is therefore virtually impossible to treat.
I also feel obligated to point out that this "not-for-profit, child-centered ministry of the church" is not State-licensed and is not "legally" required to follow state rules for ratios, etc....

E-mail to this site from Zoey S. from Australia, "Daycarer", 03-Apr-08 As a qualified child care worker I am happy to find a site that tells it like it is.

(The place where I work) children aged from 22 months to five years were fed, changed, toileted and made to sleep together like cattle.
There was no learning--merely trying to keep them all fed and clean before they got picked up. Most of the time events are staged just before it is pick-up time. For example, carers will set up toys and activities (e.g. playdough) just before pick-up time to give the parents the "right idea".

...This (bad situation) was in the older rooms--sorry, it's downhill from there to the babies' room.
Parents--stop deluding yourselves! Your four-month-old doesn't care that she is having a learning plan tailored to her needs, all she needs is her parents love and time. Babies need attention all the time, you gave birth to them, you love them, why would you leave her with 9 other children under 1 with two staff members? Could you handle 5 screaming babies? Why do you expect childcare workers to? Think about it...a lady that has just gave birth to quads would usually get support from family, friends and the community. How do you expect us to do it?

...Childcarer's don't like to admit how messed up child care is--otherwise we wouldn't be able to delude ourselves to go back there. ...Sometimes I want so bad to tell the parents the truth but can't because child care is like the tobacco industry--all smoke and mirrors and "don't ask, don't tell" policies.
