Violations and poor quality care

Occasionally, you may hear horror stories about children being abused or maltreated by their caregivers. Fortunately, such situations are very rare. Be wary of a center or family child care provider who is reluctant to have you drop in unannounced, discourages or prevents parents from talking with one another, or is unwilling to discuss any concern you have about your child or the daily program.

Remember to ask for and check references before you make a final decision about a care-giver. You can also call your state's licensing office to review the caregiver's record.

You will be making a contribution to the community if you tell your child care consultant about any programs you have rejected because there seem to be serious licensing violations or unsafe or unhealthy conditions.
