Re: Hypothetically if your daycare provider.....
If the provider wasn't spending time with him she wouldn't see those things. Unless the daycare is "school or preschool" center, I don't think it is the daycare providers job to teach my children. that is my job at home and if they do things like that great. My kids go to daycare to play.

When I had my oldest child in an in home daycare they taught him words, shapes colors and even to recognize letters starting at 2. They would sing songs, have circle time ect. I would remove my children from a place that didn't give them some kind of education.
wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.
