Monsters in Day Care was a recurring Sesame Street segment which premiered in Season 30.

In these skits, Herry Monster goes to visit a real kid at a day care center, talks to the kid, and then goes to his own day care, where he tells various monsters (including Kermit the Forg and the Two-Headed Monster) what he learned.

During the seasons this segment was run, the monsters featured in the segment would appear in other parts of the show, with consistent performers for each one, including Joey Mazzarino (purple), Stephanie D'Abruzzo (green), Jim Martin (yellow) and Alice Dinnean (Kermit the Forg).

The "Monster Day Care" center was found right behind the community garden on the street (doubling as the "Monster Clubhouse" in episode 3878) and remained a part of the set through Season 34.
