E-mail to this site from Caitlynn L., 15-May-08 Things I can tell you about happen in daycare because I work in one and see it on a daily basis. I know it's happening elsewhere, too:
  • Children put outside in the heat, by themselves, because they won't stop crying for their parents.
  • Children eating food off the floor that was served hours prior.
  • Babies left to cry themselves to sleep or to contentment out of giving up, all because they just want to be held. A little loved.
  • Babies told they are spoiled, perhaps over the weekend they were actually held.
  • Babies being fed a bottle in a hi-chair, not even old enough to hold it themselves.
  • Babies, car-seat to crib and crib to swing and swing to bouncer then changing table and high chair and back to crib and eventually back to car-seat after 8-12 hrs of this stimulating, social environment for their development.
  • Workers being told to lie to parents about their child's day when it was rough, aka cried all day.
  • Workers being told to lie about the reason a child was hurt so not to upset that child's parent.
  • Absolutely no structure.
  • Tours are always done during nap time ... wonder why ...
  • As soon as a baby can hold their own bottle they are put in the crib to hold it themselves.
  • Toddlers calling their teachers mommy and teachers encouraging it, or doing nothing to correct it.
  • Toddlers fed foods that were said to be allergic to them, parents never being told.
  • Kids moved all around all the time, sometimes three and four times a day to meet ratios.
  • Sometimes babies and toddlers would be in the office just sitting for hours until ratios allowed for them to be put back into a class.
  • Teachers not getting along, teachers being taken advantage of.
  • No washing hands between diapering and potty training.
  • Toddlers getting scissors, tape dispensers and the likes.
  • Long periods of no diaper changes
  • (Workers) lying on (written) log sheets.
  • Kids being labeled, criers, etc. Kids being made fun of because of their parents.
  • Favorites are there, no on really loves or enjoys these kids.
  • All ages being told their just fine when they get hurt, to get over it.
  • Sick kids all the time, rarely would parent be contacted about fevers.
  • Kids leaving the classroom un noticed.

I could continue, but seeing as I go back tomorrow, I like to pretend that 6-week-old babies won't be abandoned for 8--12 hours a day, so I'm done.

E-mail to this site from Rebecca C in Wisconsin, 17-Jun-08 I love your website! I worked in the child care industry for 10 years before becoming a STAY AT HOME MOM!! I would never, ever put my child in day care, not even for 1 second. It is so sad that our culture is driven by the almighty dollar and not the desire to raise and nurture our own flesh and blood. I wasted 10 years of my life waiting for parents to come pick up their kids so I could go home. If parents only knew how bad and nasty these so called "homes away from home" really are, maybe their focus would be placed back on the well-being of their children.

E-mail to this site from Serina M., 7-Jul-08 Hey, stumbled upon your site and I Love it. THANK YOU!! After working in daycare for 4 years I am almost jaded to the horrors of daycare. From witnessing awful treatment of the children to rationing of food because we were on a "budget" (and I worked in one of the larger chains) . I think parents are so far in the dark about this and someone needs to open their eyes. I guess some things are only believable when witnessed. ...I will never make the mistake of putting my child in a daycare.

E-mail to this site from Rachel, "Day cares - my view", 15-Jul-08 ...I agree that day cares are terrible, personally I would never send my child there...
I have worked in day cares for the past 6 1/2 years...I feel very upset when children of any age are there from 6:30am to 6:30pm.
I would never put my child in a day care, mainly because I do not want strangers raising my children...
Most (daycare) owners could care less about the children. They are just more money, let's just keep packing them in.

E-mail to this site from Katie B, "Day Care Workers", 28-Sep-08 I worked in a Daycare setting for two years. My experience has been that Daycare Centers are about money.
...I felt very uneasy with my coworkers and how they dealt with the children.
I never saw any abuse...but I felt they were too rough with the kids.

E-mail to this site from LaTanga R., "Daycare Nightmare",
...I have experienced abuse such as corporal punishment and withholding food... I have also experienced children that watch trash television everyday, but the daycare has a curriculum for the children that they are reporting that they are following.
The workers are not CPR certified...I have also experienced children that are made to sleep all day and they are allowed to get up just when their parents are picking them up.
How can I be a whistleblower?
