Daycare reviews and references are kind of a big deal since your kid’s life is at stake. Any good parent will take a moment to research a facility before dropping their kid off with perfect strangers. It just makes sense.

If you’ve already started your daycare research, what you find might scare you. Not to worry—the very worst daycare reviews out there aren’t necessarily reflective of the average daycare center. In fact, my husband and I were able to find an amazing in-home daycare provider for my son who goes above and beyond at an affordable price. I made sure to give her a good review on Google to put some positive Internet karma out there. I also wanted her to know that she does an amazing job, and we appreciate her very much.

Part of the daycare review process is to know what not to look for. But reading reviews always leaves you between a rock and a hard place. Can you really believe the reviewer, or were they just mad because things didn’t go their way? Is a daycare truly a horrible, unsanitary place, or was a parent in a bad mood because they didn’t like how their special snowflake was treated?

These worst of the worst Yelp reviews are undeniably bad. Take these terrible reviews as a giant warning and red flag as you search for a safe, respectable daycare for your kid:
