Doing Time: What It Really Means To Grow Up In Daycare
by May Saubier, ©2012
To argue that babies and preschoolers are better off spending the work week away from their parents is not worth debating and is insulting to parents.

After working at the job for so long, (this experienced daycare worker) knew that once she started picking up the toddlers, they would all want to be held and the job would become a nightmare.

"Socializing” in daycare fosters aggressive behavior because children are forced to go into survival mode. As a daycare child, if you want to play with a toy for any period of time, you must fight for it.

If you are a daycare child, many if not all of the following statements will apply to your life: You will not be fed a meal on demand when you are hungry. You will wait for your food while you sit in your seat. The meal will be plopped onto your tray or table. Someone will come around occasionally to help you, but you must wait. When you are finished, you will continue to wait. Eventually a wet rag will pass over your mouth and hands before you are taken out of your seat. Hopefully, at this point your bottle is ready. You will then be propped up on your pillow that has the spit up of several others on it. Then your hands will be maneuvered into position so that you may hold the bottle yourself. If you happen to drop it, you will wait again until someone notices.

While parents are busy at work at this very moment, they do not know who is caring for their child. This is one of the many absolute daycare-truths that is never spoken, or perhaps even realized.
Many, if not most, daycare centers are open 55-60 + hours per week. This means relief workers will be called in to take care of the children before the regular workers arrive in the morning, after they leave in the afternoons, while they take their lunch breaks, when they leave the room to use the bathroom and when they are out sick.
Substitute “teachers” are frequently needed in daycare centers due to the employees constantly being exposed to illness and therefore taking sick time.
Each time a worker does not arrive in the morning or leaves sick, an unfamiliar or unknown face walks into the room. Therefore, children in daycare are frequently cared for by strangers.

Daycare is a business. Communicating fully to parents often means disclosing a weakness within the “school”.
...I am imploring people to realize the very foundation of daycare is so empirically flawed that it creates impossible situations for children, caregivers, directors and parents.

Daycare Is Not “School”
Throughout the book, I will continue to use italics when referring to daycare centers as “schools” and daycare providers as “teachers” and daycare rooms as “classrooms”. It is common practice to euphemize daycare by turning it into a school setting via the language used. I choose not to do so. I believe schools are for school-aged children...

Chapter 2 - THE DAY BEGINS
A day spent in daycare begins with abandonment. Staff members are prepared for this and employ many strategies to lessen the daily blow.

What Parents Never See
I never chimed in with co-workers or directors when they told parents it was fine to leave behind their crying child who did not want to see them go. I never said he or she would stop shortly. I didn’t say this, because sometimes children do not stop crying right away, and sometimes children cry on and off all day for their parents.

Daycare workers are placed in a difficult (situation). They know parents need to leave their children and go to work. They know they want honest, frequent communication. They also realize parents need to concentrate on their jobs when they leave. When parents are told their children are miserable, all day, everyday, this does not speak well of the daycare center. This is why parents often hear a rose-colored version of how their child’s day is actually progressing.
