Disrespect for Your Concerns


Any issues or requests you have about your child's care should be addressed directly with the staff and manager of the center. If your concerns are dismissed or ignored, or if the staff becomes defensive or rude, it is a red flag that your child's care may be compromised while you are not there. Do not feel that you are being too picky or overprotective if you have questions for the staff. Your questions should be answered in an attentive and helpful manner.
