E-mail to this site from Laura C., a former pre-school management committee member from Britain

One of my tasks as a member of the management committee was to interview prospective staff...
It's generally accepted that nurseries rarely--if ever--follow up on references, relying instead on the outcome of the Criminal Records Bureau check to report any "red flags".
OFSTED* reports are not worth the paper they are written on. I can assure you the CRB checks are not much use either - unless the applicant has a criminal record, because that's all that will be flagged up by such checks. A CRB check will not provide any indication as to whether the person is a good childcare provider, only whether or not they have a criminal record...

My year on a pre-school management committee has opened my eyes to what childcare in the UK is really about.
...based on my experience, the people looking after your 3-year-old are most likely poorly qualified, poorly paid and working as a nursery nurse because the Job Centre was desperate to hit its target of getting more job seekers allowance claimants* into a job - any job.
Moreover, it's highly unlikely that all the children in the nursery will get on together but the staff don't care, so long as the places are filled, that's all that matters. If a child in the group has behavioural problems, the general attitude is "so what?" All that matters is bums* on seats because this will mean the pre-school receives more money.

E-mail to this site from Laura C., a former pre-school management committee member from Britain, 7-April-2008 Money...is what this childcare business is all about and anyone who thinks otherwise, is completely delusional and needs to volunteer at their local pre-school/daycare to get back their sense of reality.

I just wanted to send a quick email to let you know how awesome your site is!
I have been running (a day home for 5 other children) for a year now, and have just recently made the decision to close down...
These...kids are very insecure, and appear to have intense behavioral issues around their parents as seen by the outbursts of temper and what not when mom shows up to pick them up at the end of the day.
How could you not foster some resentment towards your mom and dad for essentially abandoning you for 10 hours a day with someone who couldn't possibly meet your needs like they should?
I've managed to run my day home for a year, but (now) realize what a failure it has been. My own daughter is miserable every day when the kids come, and I have decided that the one-on-one attention with my daughter is far more important than the miniscule money I'm making off enabling these other people to dump their parental responsibilities on me. I'm so glad I found your site...
Hopefully more parents will eventually see how horrible long days in group care really is for young children.

E-mail to this site from Karin N., 15-May-2008

I have been running a home child care business for over 7 years now. I can not deny that I have seen all or most of the problems and incidents in daycare settings, home-based or institutional.
I had to visit 54 childcare settings before I met...one I found to be in a clean and safe environment that I would leave my own children in, if I ever had to (as a last resort). 54!
