So the daycare that Hannah goes to charges 185 a week for a baby and 70 a week for Hannah just to be there before school and them to drop her off. I just found out that I also have to premake all of Sophia's bottles every morning because they don't make bottles. W.T.F!!! How lazy do you have to be to refuse to make bottles! Especially when I will be paying so freakin much for child care. Most daycares around here are 160 a week for a baby and 50 for hannah. I may be looking for another daycare. Seriously!! Am I over reacting????

I've worked in two daycares, and they both had that bottle policy. I can't remember the reasoning behind it, but I think it's a pretty common rule. If mom sent in breast milk, we had to feed baby with gloves and treat any spit up as if it were blood since HIV can be transmitted through breast milk and you never know. I always thought that was a ridiculous policy. Anyways, that's off topic. As for the price, if other daycares in the area provide just as good of service for cheaper, I'd switch for sure.

That does seem a little silly if you are formula feeding (since you could easily provide closed formula bottles if they were concerned about contamination).

That price seems insanely cheap to me since childcare is so cheap so if you like this daycare I'd say its not worth finding a new one for a few dollars a week but thats just me. If you dont like them for other reasons, this would be a good reason to look for an alternative.

Thanks ladies. I think I'm going to look around at other daycares tomorrow. Saving 100 bucks a month is plenty of reason alone plus Hannah's been picked on and bullied at this daycare and continues to be as well.

My daycare (which is NAEYC accredited) also has this bottle policy for formula. I think it's probably a state regulation. The only exception to the rule is that we also have the option to allow the daycare to provide the formula, in which case THEY will make the bottles - albeit at a vastly higher weekly rate. Which is clearly, not worth it. Since I've always had breastmilk bottles, it hasn't applied to me, but I also have to make sure that my BM bottles are ready made and good to go, in other words, they have to be thawed and clearly marked with the child's name, contents (liquid cyanide, of course) and ounces on the outside of each bottle. Again, this is state regulation and the daycare can be fined if they are audited and each bottle is not like this. My point Raina, is that while you're completely correct that they SHOULD be able to make the bottles themselves - don't base the decision on this particular factor alone.

The other factors (i.e.: the price and the bullying situation) are much more important. For my money, I pay $105 a week for my pre-schooler and will pay $115 for my infant (both part-time) - and while I'm loath to spend that much in theory, I'm happy to do it because I know that this is THE best daycare around. If you can find a place that's worth the money (and you can afford it, obviously) then snatch it up. Good daycares are like good mechanics - worth their weight in gold.
