I wanted to get a job at a local nursery. I know the owner and she said I could take care of the babies/toddlers in my LO's age group so she could come with me, just three hours a day. I said "fine. this is perfect for play dates because I'll get paid too." The only gliche was she wanted me to practice leaving LO in there without me for 30 minutes at a time for two days just so she could get used to the other teachers in there and this gave me some time to look over the handbook and do a little training. Literally as I'm reading the handbook I read this " employees should never tell the parents that their child had a bad day at nursery." I was shocked. I've worked at other nurseries and have seen the way the employees talk to the parents, not fully truthful with them, but I could not believe that this rule was in the handbook. Needless to say, I confronted the director of the school and told her I thought it was an awful policy and that it made me not want to ever leave LO, for even 30 minutes. the job didn't really work out.
