I have a friend who worked in a daycare, as well as brought her son there. She was not allowed to work in the same group that her son was in, that was against the rules, which I find to be fair. She did have to pay to have her son in that daycare, however she was given a discount, which was not very big. Just like with every other child they need to make a profit. So although she was in the same place as her son, and did get to see her son, she did not really get to spend time with him or "work" with him. Actually she ended up quitting due to tension. She didn't agree with how the other employee handled things with her son, so she quit and took her son out. So you have to keep in mind that not everyone will do everything the same way as you, you may disagree with certain things, and just because you work there, does not mean that you or your child should get special treatment. If you see an ad in the paper of them hiring, fill out an app, than discuss the child situation at the end of your interview.
