    Considering ALL of the scissors are un-reachable, or are stored behind closed doors, I don't know! Tell the child no. Get child in time-out. Go and Laugh (because she/he is not mine). Email/call parents to warn them for when they come to pick up. Not my problem!

    Not your problem?

    Anyway, I did have a child cut another childs hair while in my care. They were both 5 years old (old enough to know better really). I left them at the table doing crafts while I cleaned up the lunch mess and went to the bathroom. I was in eye shot and ear shot so not sure how she was so quick and sneaky about it? The cutter was a bully and very manipulative over the other girl. It was an ongoing concern. Anyway, she cut a big chunk, I gave the cutter a time out and she was never allowed to play with scissors again. I talked to her mother and let her know that I was not happy. The victims Mother was very understanding thank god, she knew that the other child was a challanging child and that her child was vulnerable and that I was not a neglectful caregiver. The two were friends outside my care, so the Mother had witnessed for herself what the other child was capable of. I have learned though, NEVER let children use scissors unless you are sitting with them, or be prepared for disaster!

    I thought all of the scissors were out of reach in a high cabinet- but alas, I was wrong, my 7 y/o had left a pair down and the 3 y/o got a hold of them..

    I will say, I love her new 'do it is adorable.

A few tips...

Always ensure that your child receives quality care by taking the time to investigate the provider and by asking for references! We simply cannot verify the claims of every daycare provider.
Updates
We expect providers to keep their listing and available openings up-to-date. However, to prevent oversights, openings expire after 45 days.
