Good job on pulling him out of there. When my nephew was little, he used to start crying when they turned down the sitter's Street. They then noticed other signs, one of which was him doing things he didn't normally do. Once they pulled him from that daycare, they never heard a bad thing about him.
I adore our sitter. I'm dreading telling her DD will only go there 2 days a week in the Fall instead of 3 (before preschool it was 4 days a week) and baby wouldn't start there until January sometime, I have never had an issue with her. She comes to kids birthday parties and the kids drop what they are doing and run to her when she walks in.
A good sitter is hard to find.
Maybe it is different for other kids, but my daughter pushes boundaries way harder with me than with her nanny, and at her preschool she is very well-behaved. I would definitely be suspicious if he is acting out a ton at daycare if it is not something you see at home. My daughter screams and kicks at me and my husband, and I am sure we have lost our temper a couple of times, but never yelling really loudly. It sounds like there are too many kids there, or at least she doesn't know how to handle them. If she is a daycare provider she should have constructive methods for dealing with toddler tantrums. Eye rolling is never an appropriate response to a parent.
The south in me goes, "oh, uh uh." As a professional she should know that everything described is normal. She should also know when she needs a time out. I worked with kids for a bit and when you're the grown up teaching kids, you'd better be able to kep your cool or get the **** out if the profession. I'm glad you can go elsewhere.
