Thumbs down Is It Okay to Leave A One Year Old in A Highchair by Themselves?

Every time I walk by the infant room, I see a one year old (he can't walk yet so he's still in there.) in the highchair. No one is next to him. The teacher can see him but she's in the room. The kid is by the kitchen area. idk.

I'm the lady who worked at the daycare with the cursing teacher. I reported this to cps along with some other things. I wanna know if this was worth reporting? I plan to email them and tell them I quit tomorrow. I'm super nervous though and feel bad because they just got me a cubby. :/ idk, i feel bad over the stupidest things.

He usually has a sippy cup not sure if he's eating. I'm not sure about the time, but on like three different days I'd walk to the bathroom and the same kid is in the high chair. Basically, they have a room. And next to the room is a kitchen area thing. There is no door between the room and kitchen so the teacher can poke her head around and see him or, she can sit on the bench in there and see him but she is no where near him. From what I can tell, no one is in the kitchen area with him.

It is an old school "bad practice" way of not having to discipline this child. More than likely he has a parent who is more drama than the child (bumps, bruises, scratches), a biter or an employee's kid so they don't want him to cry.

The fact that it is allowed and very "known" is a sign of poor management.

High chairs should be used no more than 20 minutes at a time. Tops.

You said his teacher can see him. He's not alone.

That's how my littles eat. I can't stand right next to them. I'm cooking and serving and refilling drinks etc.

This was continuous. Majority of the day. I believe she has quit, now.
