"3 to 5-Day Vacations to begin in 2021!

As a 'Thank You' for joining, Parents will receive

up to 1 year to choose 3 to 5 day vacations

to over 45 exotic locations!!

(*beginning March 10, 2021)"

The whole thing sounds like a scam to me. I will do some more research during nap.

Not me, but I don't answer unknown numbers. Did they leave a voice message?

My first thought was "Take your 3-5 day free vacation as a drug mule for us since we now know where you live, work and your kids information from your applications for all the free daycare."

It just doesn't pass the sniff test. Kind of creepy, really.

It was on my voice mail....It came across as spam being from North Carolina so I didn't answer but the message left said basically daycare would be paid by them for families?

Delete the voice mail and forget about it. Anything unsolicited is an attempt to get more out of you than you get out of them. Anything promising something super-awesome is a scam. You can adjust your own vacation policy if you need that adjustment.

When I read it it said they were a member of the NC Childcare association, but as we both know anyone can sign up for that. It is basically the associations fund raiser.

I am a member of many childcare associations, does not mean they know a thing about me or my program, they just want my dues and send me emails quarterly.

My first thought was the FCCERS-R came from two women writers that came out of North Carolina. Nothing good came from that book....caused me much stress....so nothing good for DAycare comes out of NC.

I think they are counting on people seeing the North Carolina name and automatically associating them with it without verifying.
