Is it a bad sign if our daycare center has a high teacher turnover rate?

In brief: Yes

I think you may want to ask "why?" if there is a very high teacher turnover rate.
Most child caregivers are warm, loving people who want to work in a pleasant environment where they get to know the children and their families over a steady period of time. It may be a red flag if you find there is not a consistent environment for them. Be sure to inquire about why.

In brief: Yes

Yeah, a little bit.
You want a daycare where teachers want to work, where they feel motivated and encouraged, because that good feeling brings good people, and transfers to the children. Those places have low turnover. Now, things happen, and if it's a one time thing (everybody got pregnant at the same time), then fine. But if they can't really keep anyone, then look cautiously.
