Has anyone recorded their daycare provider? Is this legal?

Be very careful and find out what the law is in your state. In some states it is legal to record a conversation, without telling the person before you start recordong. Then in other states, there are different degrees of punishment for recording a persons conversation without telling then before you start recording. You actually need to start the recorder and then say I am recording you, as proof. I learned that from the judge on Peoples Court (She deals with the law in all the states). One of the people on there entered a recording and the judge said did she know that was not legal in all states, but it was in that ladies state (she said she knew). The judge said that in one state (I forgot which one), it is a felony and you can or do serve time for it.
I assume it is the same for videos. Find out from a reliable legal source, not just a layman (a lawyer, paralegal, prosecutors office, etc...).
