Daycare Attendant FNAF Lore

Who is that hysterical character in the daycare at the PIzzaplex? Why do they change from a sun to a moon? What purpose do they serve in the overall Five Nights At Freddy’s lore?

Today we want to answer those questions. Here is everything we know about The Daycare Attendant In Five Nights At Freddy’s. The lore of FNAF is complex, so if we missed anything, or got anything wrong, let us know on social media!

The Freddy And Friends: On Tour Teaser

Before the release of FNAF: Security Breach, Steel Wool Studios began putting out teaser cartoons for the new game. These teasers would show an increasing glitched Hanna-Barbera-style cartoon featuring our favorite FNAF characters.

At the end of each trailer, we were shown a quick glimpse of characters from Security Breach. In Freddy And Friends: On Tour Episode 2, we are shown our first real animation of The Daycare Attendant.

The Lore Of The Daycare Attendant

The Daycare Attendant is a new character featured in Five Nights At Freddy’s: Security Breach. This animatronic, as its name suggests, oversees the daycare jungle gym area in the Pizzaplex.

During the day, The Daycare Attendant has the appearance of a sun. It is maniacally happy and cheery. In this phase of their transformation, they are known as Sundrop. However, when the lights go off, the animatronic transforms into a moon-themed character (known as Moondrop). The moon is still maniacal, but also very sinister.

During the events of Five Nights At Freddy’s: Security Breach, Gregory goes down a slide and finds himself in the Daycare Area. After an over-the-top entrance from The Daycare Attendant, the power to the room gets shut off. Gregory must now turn on the nearby generators while being chased by a moon-themed Daycare Attendant.

I love the Daycare Attendant because it embodies the duality of the Five Nights At Freddy’s series as a whole. We have cute and fun animatronics that play with children. At the same time, these animatronics can be very deadly. The Daycare Attendant is specifically designed to play both of these roles.

Outside of watching children in the Daycare Area, there doesn’t seem to be much ground-breaking lore to The Daycare Attendant. They are a fun character in Security Breach. In my opinion, they were the scariest animatronics in the game.

That said, I think there is one interesting lore implication with the Daycare Attendant. I don’t believe that Vanny is bankrolling Freddy Fazbear’s Mega Pizzaplex. The Daycare Attendant is one of the animatronics that naturally has an evil side built into them. Security Breach mostly focuses on Vanny corrupting the animatronics to bring back William Afton. At the same time, it seems that whoever is currently running Fazbear Entertainment is still carrying out Afton’s evil deeds.
