So I just declined to enroll my son in a daycare due to non vaccinated children [View all]

The daycare is in my work building, so it would have been very convenient to just bring my one year old son with me to work. Nice facility, decent worker to child ratio and partially subsidized. It seemed perfect and we had joined the waitlist before interviewing with the person in charge just to save some time.

We finally had the interview yesterday, and it went really well until I asked about whether there were any unvaccinated children attending.

After a few seconds she asked, "why? Is that important to you?"

Long story short, the facility has 5 children, including 3 under two, who have not received vaccinations. The woman tried to convince us that herd immunization would take care of any issues. Considering my son is too young to have received his full vaccination schedule at this point, I was not very happy.

Even still, my wife and I discussed it last night, as it was a very convenient option. In the end though, I just could not do it. We gave up our spot on the waiting list, and will begin looking at other, and probably a lot more expensive options.

Very glad I asked that question, though.
