Well done to your friend who has reported this particular daycare centre, She had done the right thing
This routine is not flexible at all and it obviously isn't working for the children but I just dont understand how that routine would actually work for the carers. As soon as one crys that would automatically wake up the others! Then you would have a nursery room full of screaming babies! All you get is stress on the baby being left to cry, stress on the other babies by disturbed sleep and stress on the carer having 8 screaming babies......How does that routine work......I am stumped
Lets face it, people DO generalise about these things and get histerical over one bad example of one or even a few childcare centres.... why does this worry me? Because it makes parent's (mum's mainly lets face it) feel guilty for sending children to daycare which is a terrible thing as we all have the right to choose! That's all.
Del wasn't referring to the teachers don't tell you but the bubs can't verbalise what is happening so if something does happen you really won't know unless the teachers disclose it to you. This is a valid reason many mums worry about
Sure thing.... It's just the posts I read as I scrolled down the page after the initial post... Comments like 'that's exactly why I don't send my kids to daycare' and so on. Seriously.. It seems utterly silly to me to use this as a reason not to trust daycare workers/centres in general. If you can never leave your child with someone for a few hrs because they don't parent the way you do - and no-one does - then its no different to leaving them with anyone including family going from numerous other threads on this forum about family...
A few hours every month with someone I know very well isn't several hours a week with someone I hardly know.
It might seem 'utterly silly' to you, but I prefer consistent ideals for my kids at their age.
