Default State is Being Lenient

Met a dcprovider at the grocery store last night and I've been dropping away from all the meetings, classes, etc. She asked me if I was still doing dc and I said yes but told her I wasn't sure if I was going to keep up with it all. She said our FP lady's hours have been dropped to 20 hrs. a week and that the state has gotten more lenient(turning a blind eye?) to providers due to the fact that providers have been quitting and there's just not enough child care available, especially infant care.
Hmmm, kind of the reverse effect of what the state wanted from quality child care I'd say.
Why, whenever the state gets involved, it's not usually a good thing?

This is what will happen if Warren wins and starts universal daycare.

Yep, our state has been driving providers out of business now for a few years. I think it's all part of their master plan......

What?! A daycare shortage??? Well we better enact free universal daycare for everyone then....



I'm sorry but I am so sick and tired of this one for all and all for one mentality. Universal anything is just plain stupid.

One size does NOT fit all....


I know this to be true. I bought some socks yesterday that said so. It's a lie.

It's the same here. I am the only family provider left in my little town.

Well, ok, I am the only legal family provider in my little town.

They just opened a 4k program with daycare around it in our town's school district. They sited the shortage and almost all the providers went and spoke about openings they have in the prek age group. The school didn't care and will charge more for prek and wrap around care along with charging for lunch. What will they do when the babies have no place to go due to all these prek places and a small limit on the number of babies we can take?

I already know the answer to this because I asked my own inspector.

They will turn a blind eye unless they have complaints of egregious violations (kids sleeping in dog crates, no power/water, 22/1 ratio, etc.), injury or death. They don't have the funding to inspect illegal providers, only the legal ones will be investigated. There was no answer to "how many deaths does it take to get the funding?"

But >insert glitter unicorn flatulance< "we won't list them on our available providers' webpage."

Had a child come to our center from a licensed exempt daycare up the road from us. Told one girl that if they don't watch it, they will be shut down
