I wouldn't (and didn't) withdraw my kid from a great daycare because the word God came up. I just wish it didn't have to.

The only thing I would be opposed is explicit endorsement of a particular faith.
When someone is paying a premium price for secular daycare, shouldn't they have an expectation that that's what their child will receive? You know, truth in advertising. . .

The OP needs to discuss this with the director. It's like when the nuns would tell me to convert my relatives. My mother went to the school & talked to the teacher. After several trips to the school about this, she went to the principal & told her that if this continued not only would she withdraw me from the school, she would call the other mothers & tell them why. That solved the problem.

Wow I cant imagine being so threatened by a pre-meal prayer with no specific affiliation that I should start a campaign to shut down a day care.

Who said anything about a campaign to shut down the day care. People have said over and over it is not prayer it is principle and they feel as if they have been misled. Seems like this horse has been beaten to death and you are unwilling to consider any points other then your own and do not seem to have anything helpful to offer the OP.

Either you were being sarcastic and I completely missed it, or you have no idea what the Torah is.

And asking kids to bow their heads and fold their hands in front of them is an implicit endorsement of a particular faith. And that's the problem.

When I grew up in the NYC area, we had a minute of silent prayer every morning.

You could pray to any deity, review for a test, or plan the evening's date with your girlfriend.

All you needed to do was to be silent.

So, what's wrong with that?

Nothing...I don't understand why people go flying off the handle about a minute of prayer. If a parent doesn't want their kid to participate then advise them to stare at the floor or something. Be considerate of the others.
