I am a licensed daycare provider in my home state, a former nanny and a state certified teacher.
Currently I have one infant in (my) care and my beautiful two year old daughter.  I have to tell you that parents are...blind (to) drop their children off in daycare. Even with my very low (ratio), you are absolutely right.   
...The motto of daycare should be "you stop paying, we stop caring"
.  (The) infant (I am caring for) will be leaving [(since) her parents (are) moving] after nearly a year and a half in my care.  Needless to say, I feel awful for saying this, but I could care less since someone else is coming to take her place. 
It is a job.  It is so sad to me that parents are giving up these precious years with their children
to people like me (and I consider myself to be an excellent daycare provider), who can't wait for these kids to get picked up (at the end of the day)!! 

Thanks for your site-
Veronica

I like your site and agree with you completely, as I've been working in various forms of daycare situations for over 8 years.

I had to laugh about (the) question regarding licensing.

I have a licensed daycare home, and let me tell you that my license means almost nothing. They did a preliminary process including a background check, but after that was over, I was on my own. The woman from DCFS is supposed to have two unannounced visits per year, but she is so overworked that I only see her about once every 15 months. She comes in, checks my paperwork, gives my kitchen and playroom a quick glance, and leaves. I could be doing who-knows-what to those children, and she wouldn't have a clue.

I feel that I do a good job with my daycare, but I'll be honest; I'm no replacement for their parents. I spend a good portion of the day wishing the daycare kids would leave so I could spend some one on one time with my own child. I try to be fair and give them equal attention, but my son is my first and foremost priority. I try to give them the nurturing they need, but no amount of money will make me love those other children. I'm not their mommy. And they need their mommies. Desperately.

Anyway, thanks for putting this site up. I hope it will change people's attitudes about what they are doing to their children when they send them away for the day.

Excerpt from "Lil Cup of Love" blog,
Looking under rocks, 2-Dec-04
I worked in childcare for a while, people often ask me why I don't go back to it. They hear me speak of the babies, and how much I loved them, how cute they were, and they wonder why I don't go back to doing childcare, well I'll tell you, it's not because of the children.
...This is for all you "socialization" freaks out there, keep your grubby mitts off my child. I will see to her socialization, I will see that she is taught right from wrong, I will attend to her needs.
Farm your infants off to daycare centers if you wish.  Guess what, the village* can kiss my behind, I'm the one who loves my child, I'm the one who cares for her, she came from my body, and I will not let the village interfere in how she is raised. I cannot tell you how incredibly arrogant it is to assume society can socialize a child better than a family. Tell you what, go spend some time in a daycare center. You'll see the socialization children are getting.
*Referring to the tired old clich, "It takes a village to raise a child".
