I want to thank you for a great website.
  • When I was in college, I worked in one of the "good" daycare centers. The facilities at this very expensive daycare were impressive and up-to-date. We carefully obeyed all of the regulations, conducted regular fire drills, constantly inspected the rooms and equipment for safety, and everything was kept extremely clean. The owner was a genuinely nice lady who wanted to provide the best possible care for children. The ratio rules were stringently enforced: 1-4 in the infant room, 1-5 for the toddlers, etc.
     
  • None of these things impressed the babies who were left with us all day long.
    There was a six-week-old baby who was dropped off at 6:00 a.m. and picked up by her exhausted parents at 6:00 p.m. every day. 12 hours without her parents. The worker in her room referred to her as "a crier", because she was constantly wound up and upset. Then there was the four-year-old boy whose parents just didn't know what to do about the fact that he enjoyed hitting other children. Another child, known as "the biter", regularly bit other children so hard that he broke their tender skin.
     
  • If our facilities were so great, why were the children having such problems?
    We employees were nice enough, at least for the most part. We were just all a little preoccupied with college. Some of my co-workers were preoccupied with their boyfriends-of-the-week. And then there were the weekend party girls, who didn't really like kids, but needed to have some sort of income. We were all there for the paycheck. Not because we loved children. And as is the norm for these types of places, the turnover rate was very, very high.

I now have two children of my own, and I wouldn't dream of leaving them in a daycare facility. I would even extend my criticism to after-school programs for elementary aged children. I think kids need a parent in the house after school.
Anyway, thank you again for your website. I've been saying these things for years.

"I would like to thank you so much for trying to open people’s eyes to the dangers of daycare. ...I have failed to find anything on your site that is untrue about daycares.   Children are basically corralled from room to room while workers do their best to keep the children from killing each other."

"...In many cases, the daycare providers feel like they’re the only ones who care about the kids, but the children still aren’t loved. "

..."As far as health inspectors bending over backwards for daycares, this is absolutely true as well. Where I live, state inspectors check the daycares (only) once per year. Not only is it the same month every year so workers know when to expect it, but the inspectors even tell the director when to expect them ('Make sure everything’s okay, because I’m on my way out there right now.')"

Sarah, an infant caregiver in Orange County, CA, quoted from "The abandonment of America's children" on Dr. Laura Schlessinger's column on WorldNetDaily, 25-Jun-04

"Every day I get out of bed half dreading the day...
Dreading it because of the so-called 'liberal-minded' parents who say they are doing the best thing 'socially' for their children by placing them in institutionalized care at the tender age of 6 weeks..."
