So, we sent our kiddo to this daycare and had high hopes when we started. We had high hopes when we saw the first bad signs. We held on to hope when we saw more bad signs. But we have finally lost all hope for these people.
The first bad signs were when we found out that they had lied about a couple of things. None of the teachers have, or are getting, child development/education degrees like we were told. That wasn't a big deal so we ignored it. They sent home a daily schedule that they never used, but we ignored that. They started getting really excessive with parenting ""advice"" that I know to be bad because I do have a degree in child development. We ignored it. Then I saw a teacher YELLING a kid using really condescending language. Then I saw them put a 1 year old in time out ( a BIG no-no and they claim to never use that method, so another lie) Then on 3 or 4 different occasions I heard a teacher tell a parent it was okay to bring food, even though another child was allergic. Then I saw a teacher snatch a 2 year old up by the arm when he was too slow to come after being called.
They are really good at telling you what you want to hear, but if you are going to risk it and send your children there anyway, just keep an eye out. Watch all the rooms and all the teachers, not just the ones putting on a show when they see you walk through the door.
