Here in Mass., daycare rules are very strict, for a reason - the state runs Cori and Sori checks, inspects playground equipment - pools, everything! In Mass you also have to carry hefty liability insurance which is expensive. The State promptly came to her house and shut her down. (I knew she was unlicensed because I did my homework and called the State first) I hope she incurred a hefty fine as well. Who in their right mind would run an unlicensed daycare and care for other's children? Full-time daycare in Mass. runs $300 and up per child - I'd like to make about 60 to 70K, tax free, per year.

My son, who is in college, pays 43k per year to go to school - my husband and I have taken out huge loans to help him out and we both work full time and pay huge taxes. It's called greed, plain and simple and a lot of people think they are above the law. Shame on the parents of these children, as well, for not checking to see if this daycare was licensed in the first place. I stewed for about a year about this before I called the state. There is no excuse for this.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say you did this for job security purposes.

You inspect licensed daycares for a living, and you narced on an unlicensed daycare?

Yup, selfish personal interest.

And as far as you taking out huge loans to pay for your kids $43k per year schooling.....that's a personal problem. I don't see how that relates the the safety of an unlicensed daycare. Once again, selfish personal interest/jealousy.

The un-fenced pool.....that's not cool....but then again, even in our extremely rural area, we have laws regarding pools and restricting access, even if you don't have a daycare.
Spouse of a daycare provider....which I guess makes me one too!
