Mason ... naughty at daycare?

So ... I'm not sure how I feel about all of this, but here goes ...

We have historically been told that Mason is one of the more well behaved kids at his daycare. We recently got a new acting principal while ours in on maternity leave and it seems some things have changed.

Yesterday when Kyle went to pick the kids up, he was informed that Mason was a very naughty little boy and that he was written up twice. LOL. They write up four year olds? Seriously. Incident number one involved Mason not following the teacher's directions and incident number two involved him supposedly hitting another child for no reason during storytime. Really? Doesn't really sound like my kid.

I have had a lot of issues with the teachers at daycare. They are uneducated, young and mostly there because they need a paycheck, not because they love or want to teach children. The other day I witnessed one child getting yelled at to sit down as he cried from an injury to his hand. Really? You bet I said something about that. I can just imagine what goes on when the parents aren't watching.

So this morning Mason cried when Kyle dropped him off at daycare, which he NEVER does. Someone please tell me why and what happened before I go into daycare and start demanding to know exactly what is going on!


  1. Hmmm...well I would say if reports on his behavior have changed so drastically then something has to be up that is 1. causing him to be upset and act out or 2. they are being picky about things. I had issues with daycare too for Kallie, I took her out and never put her back but with Brittany I didn't have a choice. I put her into a Christian preschool and it was wonderful. They actually teach the kids things to get them ready for kindy...Brit is at the top of her class in 1st grade! I hope that you get it figured out!

  2. oh. I'm so sorry to read this.

    If these gals are young, perhaps they don't have the experience with kids to know when something is just typical kid stuff verses an actual behavioral issue?

    But yelling at a child.....especially one that is crying because he is hurt...that would raise red flags for me too.

    Is there a large teacher to child ratio?

    I'd bring this stuff up with both the acting a regular Principals.

  3. Hmm thats kind of scary that he's crying now! I would be wondering what the heck is going on too! I hope it starts going better for him!!
