Some ppl simply shouldn't work with chn. If the industry wasn't always so desperate for staff they wouldn't continue to hire just anybody.
the op's post - that is so wrong, the treatment of the babies is so wrong, and the stories that other people have said are also disturbing.
I am not a fan of my baby being raised by the decisions of another. How a daycare deals with babies is not how I deal with babies, and not how I want my babies to be dealt with... and so I'd not use one for a baby.
Some people need to work, I get that... but while we were poor as hell when DD was little, I didn't care, because I'd rather live on mince and rice than have her be treated in a way I didn't agree with.
I don't like the sound of babies crying. I couldn't work in a centre and NOT tend to a crying baby unless my arms were already full with another baby... and even then I'd prob be doing what I could.
I snuggled DD to sleep for most of her baby years... I was all about not forcing her to cry if I didn't have to.
This is terrible! I run a nursery.... We have a very open relationship with our families, we encourage them to write down how their night was, when they woke up, ate or had bottles last....
1/2 our babies are on 10 & 2 sleeps or just the 1230 sleep....
We never leave them to cry and stay with them until they settle.. We to go off cues though... We have good relationships with our bub's we know when they have had enough...
I'd take the baby out of that centre right away, you need to trust the centre, you can not be content otherwise....
Don't be deterred, there are many good centers out there... You have to find them
We like to say Our centre is all of "our home", we can't make it work if we can't work together
I want to make it clear that it is not generally accepted, nor is it a reflection of an average cc centre.
As for CIO at daycare, that is also not acceptable in qld centres.
Wow some of these stories are absolutely horrible!!!
I would never have my child in child care/day care etc..
I had her only when I knew i would be staying at home to raise her..the thought of handing my baby to someone I don't know for a day makes me feel ill!!!
