Daycare Actions

My daughter is two and very grown for her age. She will be three in two months and she has been over three feet tall since she turned two. My daughter is very verbal and can communicate very well. She has been attending this daycare since she was two months old and I have had concerns but my husband always tells me I overreact. When we drop her off none of her teachers are there and we have to take her to the kitchen (cafeteria) where she eats, after that she goes to her class. When I pick her up the morning teachers never seem to communicate with the afternoon teachers so when I ask questions they tell me they don’t know. I have never had trouble other than biting and some red marks when she was learning to walk. My daughter seems to love going out there. She moved to her new class and children so young that cant speak clearly moved in her class. That upset me. She has mentioned they pop-pop her in her last class after starting her new class and she came home today with a bite mark on her back covered by a Band-Aid with no note. This was found when we were bathing her. Is it wrong for me not to want her in the same class with children that are not even two. Is it wrong for me to be concerned that she is supposedly starting a 2k class that I am paying for and received no feedback on in four days. No one can even tell me how or what she is doing and this program is over 2 thousand a year plus childcare. I live in a small town and this is supposedly the best daycare in town, a Christian daycare. Sometimes I think the name is all that is caring this center. The director is kind of a smart tail and we are not the best of friends but I have had enough of rules only applying to certain ones and children being placed with the wrong age group. I am going in the morning to address some of my concerns but this is my first child and my husband thinks I overreact but my motherly instinct tells me different. I do hate it because she seems to love going to her new class.

There is no excuse for failing to communicate with you, I realize they're busy, but you need to know if there is a bully, or if the child is having issues with anything, etc. Tell them to hire a few more people, if they don't, find a new place

I worked in a daycare back in the day and they moved kids of any age around to keep the kid to teacher ratio accurate bc if they didn't they were breaking the law.
