I live in a city that majority are Armenian. I have come across alot of problems here trying to get to know people because to be honest the people I have met here are very snotty and stand offish. I've been visiting daycares for weeks now and have gotten the rudest most racist comments simply from not being Armenian. I want my dd to be in a daycare where they respect all cultures even if it's not our own. I get comments like "well we only want Armenians here because we have a higher education then what you teach your child" or "sure you you can leave her here but we will not accomodate your type of culture only Armenian" I hate stereotypes but I have lived here for almost 3 years and still I have seen time and time again that they think they are so much better then everyone. Obviously not all think that way but man it's getting kind of scary now that it's getting closer to having to chose a daycare. I've been a sahm soAnswer Question

Wow! This is quite a question. Are the day-cares rude because you or the Dad are not American citizens? I don't doubt what you are saying, I live in the deep South and I have heard all types of ignorant talk. Me being past military, I have lived all over the world. Yes, I have been some places that don't like American military personnel.
If these are privately owned day care centers then you can take your complaints to either the Better Business Bureaus or to your Attorney General in your state. If these a publicly funded day cares, like Headstart, etc., then you need to RUN to both of the above mentioned places.
I am sorry if this is your first encounter with the American citizens. I do not think ALL American are this way.

I am sorry to have missed the question, ARMENIAN, and not AMERICAN. My niece was married to an Armenian man, for a very short time. She said she was miserable and filed for a divorce. Sadly, he had already got his green card, after the divorce went back and brought back an Armenian bride. I would still check with your Attorney General.
