Doesn't make sense...
Of course you would state such comments if you worked there. Perhaps you worked in a better center that did manage to follow State Laws & Rules!
This Camarillo center DID NOT follow the "same principals & practices". They did not follow thr "Black & White posted" procedures!
At the beginning, I was a naive, 1st time parent & single mother, unaware of ALL of my resoures, but I was not a neglectful mother & I did not just "dump off" my child at daycare! I immediatley requested that the teacher in question NOT be allowed to care for my son, while the compliants were under investigation. I soon became aware of ADDITIONAL resoures DURING the INVESTIGATION & COMPLAINT PROCEDURE! & got the support I needed from my husband upon his return! AND JUST TO NOTE, MY SON NO LONGER GOES TO ANY CENTERS!
Yes, this complaint really does "speak numbers about the person I am". I am a VERY RESPONSIBLE MOTHER WHO IS PROTECTING MY CHILD'S RIGHTS & WELFARE! I WENT THROUGH THAT CENTER WITH A FINE TOOTH COMB! My husband had the right to confront that director! I should have as well, but I would have done worse! AND any angry parent has the right to as well!
But the director tried to hide behind a "dis-enrollment" to try to deviate from the investigation, is bull! And shows what kind of a director that is in charge of our children at that center. And I did not cause "problems for the center" I simply corrected their negligence and made parents aware of the coverups they try to hide & deny when they get busted!
EVERY PARENT HAS THE RIGHT TO REQUEST THE PROCEDURE OF ANY TEACHER IN QUESTION CARING FOR THEIR CHILD! I SURE DO HAVE THE RIGHT & IT IS MY BUSINESS, ESPECIALLY IF THIS TEACHER IS CARING FOR MY CHILD! Also, to add to this, some people do commit crimes, after a "PRE-EMPLOYMENT BACKGROUND CHECK" or the crimes do not show up 'on record' until often after a background check is completed!
These teachers do have a ratio, and they also have assistance. They are required to call for assistance when they need it, which often NEVER happened in this center! One time I walked in, and one teacher had 18 toddlers in her room. Unnacceptable. I went to the front desk & told it to the director! Teachers go into this job usually because they love caring for children & teaching children. If they do not like their job or grow tired of being a teacher, they should quit & NOT TAKE IT OUT ON OUR INNOCENT CHILDREN!
I do agree with you that "KinderCare is for profit". And I will add Knowledge Learning Corporation is in this business only for profit as well! That's a shame, THEY CARE NOTHING FOR THE PARENT'S CONCERNS NOR THE CHILDREN'S WELFARE & RIGHTS! JUST DO A SEARCH & LOOK AT ALL THE COMPLAINTS AGAINST KNOWLEDGE LEARNING CORPORATION AND KINDERCARE NATIONWIDE!!!
My final word for the record, DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CHILD AT KINDERCARE! EVER!
