    It is sad. That scam has been going around forever. I'm sure all of us here must have gotten it once or twice. They don't even bother changing up the picture of the 'father and son'. Goes to show you that it still works. Like fishing. I'm sure out of every 500 providers, he will scam 1 or 2 (who knows...maybe more).

    you know what, that is really sad and i am angry for her. i wish all daycare providers knew about that scam. i informed all my daycare provider friends so they were all aware. up until a few months ago, two of them didn't know about it and i am glad i mentioned it.

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.
