Way Way OT-How would you handle this?
Well Donnie is just getting over a 3 week cold and an ear infection. I have kept him out of church for about a week and a half and took him back tonight for his "Busy Bees" class. Anyway, after church was over I went in to get him only he wasn't in his classroom. The back door was open and all of the children includding older youth were outside in the dark in the 50 degree weather playing. Here is the kicker....his teacher was standing inside the door of the church while my 2 year old son/almost 3 year old was outside playing in the dark (by the way the church is on a busy road) and he was not wearing his jacket or his hat. I do not know how long she was standing inside that is beyond the point because it only takes a second for him to get on the road, not to mention she took the children out to play in the cold and he is just getting over everything. How would you handle this? I know she is not a babysitter and I already have to go over everything he cannot eat and it isn't really not her responsibility to know his medical issues. What is the polite way resolve this? -Liz

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site:
Does your nursery have a policy handbook. Ours does and I am forever trying to get them to follow it properly....we deal with cleaning issues though.

That said, out nursery (newborn to 4's) don't ever go outside for nursery.

I would aks if it is going to be a habit an dif it is, tehna sk aobu the safety issues involoved with it and how they will handle it. Like how many adults, makign sure th ehcildren are covered/warm enough.....

Good luck, I have had such a time with our nursery with cleanliness, I feel like giving up. but winter is coing and I cna't give up. I need Jedd healthy.

Renee, mother to Nicholas, born 4/18/08 with silent reflux, moderate laryngomalacia, Sandifer's Syndrome& suspected MSPI. On Neocate, Simply Thick and Prevacid. Also mother to Nathan, born 12/06/06, who had mild reflux the first few months.
Well, you have to say something. The safety issue of the road would get me most off, but the cold weather and no coat is bad as is the fact that the teacher wasn't outside where she would have better visibility. Is there someone in charge that isn't the offending teacher you could take it up with? If not, you'll just have to talk to the teacher herself. Just try to express your concerns. If she is not responsive in the way you would hope, then maybe you'll have to reconsider bringing him. His safety and health are too important. JMHO

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
IF this is the first time-I'd probably let it "slide". If stuff like this has happened before, I'd speak politely with the director.

Let me tell you about a similar thing that happened to me this week: I was at work (MMO) and I saw Maggie out on the playground. It was also in the 50s with a lot of wind. She has had a runny nose and such. So she didn't have on her coat. I can't let her see me bc she goes nuts. I got another teacher to stick her head out there and ask why Maggie didn'thave her coat on. Well, the teacher was sitting on her butt calling the TWO YEAR OLDS over one by one to get their coat and apparently it wasn't Maggie's turn yet. SO GET THIS: the teacher had the coats all mixed up. Another teacher's kid had on Maggie's coat UNDER HER OWN COAT. So basically my kid was without a coat when another kid had on TWO. Make sense? nope

Kathryn, Pager Volunteer and mommy to Emily Mia 02/04/07. 3 years old with GERD. 30mg Prevacid and Pepcid AC. Mylanta needed for flares. Failed prilosec med switch. Tried and failed many med weans but GERD and pain are well controlled. Functional constipation. Reoccurring SBBO. Suspected IBD or autoimmune disease. Resolved issues: MSPI, CSID (acquired), Stage 2 kidney reflux, Chronic diarrhea.
Audrey Meadow 06/20/08. born 34/35 weeks. Still b/f and eats everything! ftt and chronic constipation.
i understand she is not a "baby sitter" but she took on the responsibility of watching kids. kids of all age ranges have cretin necessary needs and requirements that have to be met; ie. 2-3 y/os do not know to put on jackets by themselves nor do they have a great concept of where they can and can not play... if she does not know that or disregards that as her responsibility maybe he shouldn't be watched by her.

If she really is a nice well meaning lady i bet a simple conversation where respected boundaries are set (like her letting you know the days activities or you arriving before the class is really over) might be the fix.
Check with your
doctor first!
