Daycare Note to Parents

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy.

This daycare note to parents has told them that they need to get off the phone when picking their children up by posting a very blunt message on the door of the daycare center.

Here is what the sign on the front of the door says:

“You are picking up your child! Get off your phone!
Your child is happy to see you, are you happy to see your child?
We have seen children trying to hand their parents their work they completed and the parent is on the phone. We have heard a child say, “Mommy, mommy, mommy” and the parent is paying more attention to their phone than their own child. It is appalling!
Get Off Your Phone!!”

Juliana Farris Mazurkewicz saw the message posted on the door of her child’s daycare and post a picture of it on Facebook.

Some parents are outraged by this message and some completely agree with this. I’m sure Juliana didn’t realize how viral her post would be, but this definitely hits a nerve with a lot of parents on both sides.

Here is Juliana’s original post…

What are your thoughts about this? Do you agree with what this daycare owner posted on the daycare door? We would love to see your opinion on this and let everyone know what you think!

    I totally agree, being a recent retired teacher. We hear a lot of things from the children about their home environment.

    I totally agree with the day care So many times I see kids trying to get their parents attention but the parent is to engrossed on their phone

  3. Evelyn McCarstle

    Having worked in daycare, I totally agree with this message. It breaks my heart to see kids so excited to see their parents only have the phone call be more important.

    Parents, see the light in your kids’ eyes!

  5. you and your child have been parted all day so the least u can do it pay them a little attention when picking them up

    Sad that they even would need to post it but I’ve seen people sitting with their kids at McDonald’s and never even look up from their phones. Put it down, nothing is more important than your kids.

    Unless the call really is something that is “life or death” or “I’ll lose my job if i don’t take this call now” type thing. I agree completely. hang up and give your child your attention.
