5.  "Our employees come and go..."
Ann Douglas, author of The Unofficial Guide to Childcare puts the turnover rate at day care centers at "a mind-boggling 30% per year."
...Unfortunately, your kid may pay the price for such haphazard treatment long after he has moved out of day care.

6. "...and those who stay get little training."
Thirty states
, including Arizona, New York and Pennsylvania, let individuals become teachers in licensed day care centers without any prior training, according to child care licensing regulations compiled by Wheelock College Institute for Leadership and Career Initiatives.
The training deficit gets worse: In Maryland an individual can work with children as an aide at 16 years of age with no training whatsoever.

8. "The only license we have is a driver's license."
Restaurants need a license. Barber shops need a license. But don't be surprised if your day care center lacks any state certification. Many centers, such as some faith-based programs and health club nurseries, legally operate without licenses. Yet even if your child's day care provider is licensed, that doesn't ensure that it offers a high-quality program. "All [that does] is establish a minimum floor below which a facility should not go," says Faith Wohl, president of Child Care Action Campaign.

State licensing agencies set minimum standards designed to reduce the risk of harm to children from injury, unsafe buildings and the spread of disease. But because states decide on their own what those standards are, requirements for things such as group size, staff-to-child ratio and maintenance of environments vary widely.  In New York the child-to-staff ratio for four-year-olds is 8-to-1; in Texas it's 20-to-1.

It is the day care facility-institutions-that raises our children now, and the result has been the most horrific social experiment history has ever seen.

...(your children) are killing each other.  They are having babies at younger ages and in record numbers in a desperate search for that unconditional love they couldn't find in the myriad of...daycares they had growing up.
