Unknown Daycare Group in Alexandria, Virginia

Received Monday, December 17, 2007-Daycare Warnings
Not sure how to post a sighting, but this was on a blog for Alexandria, VA! I was walking on King Street today around 11.20 near the Uptowner Coffee Shop and the Casablanca Restaurant, when I saw a day care group walking the little ones - all holding on to the rope. The children were all around 2, and the day care workers were pulling the rope and making them walk too fast....The kids kept falling down on the sidewalk, and the workers just stood over them, not helping them up yanking the rope. I saw one little girl crying reach up to the lady, and the lady literally brushed her off. The kids kept falling down, and the ladies kept pulling the rope. On top of all of that, it was freezing out, and the kids did not have on hats or gloves. I did not say anything to the workers, or get the name of the daycare center, but other people on the sidewalks were as disgusted as I was.

What good is it going to do posting it if you didnt bother to have heart enough to do something to help those poor children? Shame on you OP.

This would of been a good post for a bad daycare center. I wish you had the name of the daycare center.

Op is a 1st time poster. The guilt will get to her like it did all of us when we saw something like this for the first time and did nothing. And I'm sure she will keep her eyes open now and ask for the name of the Daycare when she sees them again ... right, OP?

I'm sorry, but if you see that and don't either do something yourself or call the police and make a report then you are letting your indifference, selfishness or cowardice win out over what you know to be right. I'm not saying you are a bad person, but you could have been better on this day.
