'Daycare' sounds like 'babysitting' and anyone can do that. Use 'preschool' or 'learning center' in your title (of your daycare business). It will give your parents a sense of assurance knowing they're (the children are) not being babysat all day".

You are right on many counts - I've worked in two daycare centers - one was always trying to mess with ratios (the director refused to get rid of one worker whom I thought was abusive to the toddlers in my care because she was "at least a warm body")  You do get workers who are underpaid and want to move on to jobs that are higher paying.  The work in a daycare center is backbreaking work.
...Parents...want the "academic" stimulation of a center, etc.  They are sold on the (mistaken) idea that kids need to be socialized. 
...kids need to bond, learn security, have long spans of time to play, learn how to do things themselves in their own time -- none of this happens at a daycare center.

I worked at (a childcare center) for about a year and eight months.  They were horrible.  Didn't care about the children or ratio.  They made their Mac and cheese one time with flour and water to avoid having to pay for the cheese.  They're full of empty promises and lies.  They (the daycares) tell the parents they keep more staff than needed in the rooms and then when the tour is over, they pull teachers so they're out of ratio. 
They don't pay workers more than (minimum wage) and don't pay overtime and we had to stay more than 3 times a week late.  AWFULI HATE DAYCARES!

I agree with your views on parenting and the effects of daycare.  For some reason, after 9 years of staying home with my children I decided I could offer a quality, safe place for children whose parents had to work outside of the home.  I was so miserable in the first month, I had to stop. My children no longer had a home of their own.   No matter what the activities I had planned were or the food I had prepared, no one was happy. These kids need their parents. My heart goes out to those who really have no choice but to do daycare. I also feel for the children whose parents work full-time so they can support the lifestyle that they feel they need above raising their children. As if a newer car or bigger house is more important than a child's need for family. It's just so sad.
