Default I Was Left 6 Kids Over Ratio, Should I Report It?

My center left me 6 kids over ratio a few weeks ago. I let them know and they got angry with me and I was let go. I have worked there for a year and have never been fired before. Now I am not sure what to do, if anything. I was over ratio again a week later, and again they knew. Is there anything I should do, or just look for a new job and forget about it. I really do feel that I was let go because I asked them why I was not sent help when I was so far out of ratio.

me personally would report it, but I would not want to go back to a job that was ok with breaking the law. Especially trying to involve me in it......

Yes! I would report it for the safety of the children. It may seem like retaliation for being fired, but if you do it for the kids its not! If something happens to one of the kids and you were aware of the situation how will you feel about not reporting it? Hope that doesn't sound harsh, it's just something to think about.

Each state is probably different, but here it is through the department of health and human services. Did you try googling (your state name) child care licensing? If there is a main state phone number they could direct you.

I would think whoever does the licensing or comes to do inspections.

Your county or state licensing. What state are you in?
