In brief: When you've concerns

You need to feel fully comfortable that the people with whom you're entrusting your most precious "gift" and know that they are fully capable and qualified to watch over them. If you have any question about the care, the safety, the exposures, or any suspected risks, you should wonder. Smoky smells, poor hygiene/diaper care, irritability, poor responses to daycare providers should raise red flags.

In brief: See below

If you have concerns about the care your child is receiving at a daycare then you should move that child.
Reporting your concerns to the daycare will help them solve any problems that are going on, but you will still be unsure unless you move.
