E-mail to this site from D.V., 23-Jul-11 I have worked in daycare centers off and on since I was 14 years old. I have witnessed many (bad) things. I often feel as though I am given far too many children to deal with. I also am given children who have many problems at home, those who have difficulty sharing at all which makes you feel as though you should have on a referee striped shirt with a whistle! It is often difficult to deal with so many different personality types at one time. I, as a daycare aide, would not  put my children in a daycare....ever.

E-mail to this site from M.H., "Just Another Voice", 28-Jul-11 I just want to let you know that I wholeheartedly agree with this website.
Every day is awful and my heart breaks for these children. That is too much for a job to ask. I have nightmares about my job. I go home crying.
All of the children ask for daddy and mommy all day and I'm really trying to do the best I can, but I just can't replace their parents. No one can. These children need their parents,...
(My supervisor reminded me) "we only tell (parents) positive things about their child, no negative." I signed a contract of confidentiality upon employment, and wish I never had, because I do NOT agree with withholding the truth from parents. I feel evil. I feel dishonest.
I am going to do everything in my power to ensure that my child never has to set foot inside a daycare. It is awful.

E-mail to this site from Beth C., "Love your site!", 2-Aug-11 I just wanted to let you know that I love your website. As a former teacher in an institutional daycare setting, I have seen the horrors (no, I don't believe that's too strong of a word!) that can occur there, and the damage done to young children...
As noted on your site, I am one of the majority who has worked in the field who decided my children would NEVER be placed in daycare of any kind.
Please keep doing what you can to spread the word about the dangers of daycare! only parents could be a fly on the wall at these centers...I'm sure most would make the financial sacrifice to keep their babies and toddlers at home where they are best loved and cared for...
Again, keep up the great work!

I'm so glad I found your website. I've worked in Daycare "Preschool" for 7 years and am looking for another job. Children don't belong in group care...I cry while driving home a lot of days because it is so stressful. And I am an adult. If it is stressful for
 me, then it must be much more so for the children.
I work in one of the highest quality centers in the US. We always get the highest ratings and are NAEYC certified as well as certified by our state, which has very strict ratings. Our teachers all have college degrees and most report liking children  as their reason for choosing to work there.
It is beginning to hurt my soul to go to work because I know this is not the best place for these children.  I really cannot do this much longer. I am an excellent caregiver, but when I respond to a child with "You'll be ok" when he's crying cause Mommy left for work and I KNOW he won't be ok unless mommy decides to stay home with him, I really need another job in another field.
I really am glad for this website so that I can see I am not alone in my views and I am not just crazy and old-fashioned.

I was relieved to find your site, and to see that there are so many other people who feel the way I do about daycare.   I worked at one of the best childcare centers in my city.  Do people really think that 1 person is capable of providing quality care to 4 infants at once--some of them only 6 weeks old?!  I love babies, but we could not provide them with more than the basics.  All day it was just an assembly line of changing diapers, changing soiled clothing, feeding bottles, filling in daily sheets, putting to bed, putting them down to play, or putting them in the swing.    There was absolutely no time for anything beyond the most basic care. 
I decided that I would NEVER send my child to daycare, and I've stuck to it.

Parents think everything is fine when they pick up their children. They have NO idea what really goes on all day.
What really upsets me, is that the government refuses to value parents who want to stay at home- Instead of supporting these families- whether it is the father, or the mother - they instead give tax credits for childcare and virtually force both parents to work just to keep a roof over their heads. I know we will struggle financially when our little one is born - but I never want to put my children in the kind of risky situations I have seen at nursery.
