Angelina Jolie has been slammed for leaving her kids at a day care centre meant for parents who aren’t able to make ends meet – despite the fact that she is literally rolling in cash.

The Lara Croft star has been leaving her four kids at the day care at the Warner Brothers Inc. lot even though she has four nannies at home to take care of them.

And, what further has parents enraged is the fact that though Ange is using 'full-time spots' at the subsidized daycare, Maddox and Pax are there only for a few hours every day, and that too when the family is in town.

Also making parents see red is the fact that though their kids have to be put on a waiting list just to get in the day care, Ange’s tots face no such problems.

"She and Brad Pitt have more money than God and are using a subsidized facility set up for everyday workers trying to make ends meet," quoted an insider, as telling the Enquirer.

"In the 3, 4 and 5-year-old program, which Pax and Maddox attend, there are only 18 spaces for each age group, and there is a waiting list to get in. Most parents wait an average of two years for an opening - and here's Angelina breezing in with her kids!"

"Angelina usually drops off her kids around 10 am and picks them up around 2 pm. She could use one of several private facilities catering to celebrity children," the insider added.

And to top it all, there’s also the strict instructions left by the star that parents of other kids are not to enter the centre till her own children are whisked away, and that there are no cell phones allowed for fear that someone will click unauthorised pics of Jolie’s kids.

"Other parents are instructed not to look at or talk to Angelina, and she never speaks to any of them," the insider said.
