I recently signed my daughter up for in-door swimming classes. Before signing up when entering the building I was speaking to someone at the front desk about classes when my daughter had a accident. She doesn't typically have accidents but she's four, it happens. Anyways, I cleaned her up and we came back to the front desk. I was asked enter a room with another person who would speak to me about signing my daughter up for the classes. I was asked to read the pool/school Policies/Rules and explain them to my daughter, my daughter was then told to say that she understood the rules. I was asked to specifically pay attention to these rules because of what happened at the front desk:
"(4)All children 3 years or younger or those who are not fully potty trained/potty trained are required to wear approved swim diapers (no exceptions will be made). Approved swim diapers are for sale at the front desk. Members must have all diapers checked by the front desk prior to entering the pool facility. All children with approved diapers will receive a wristband that must be visible on the child at all times. Lifeguards will conduct diaper checks and all members not in compliance will be asked to leave for the remainder of the day.
(5)If a student defecates in the pool, or soils themselves outside the pool/pool area without a diaper on it is critical that the office staff be notified immediately. After the first occurrence of any of those situations, the student (regardless of age) is required to wear both a disposable swim diaper and a vinyl cover under their swimwear as well as a regular disposable diaper while inside the facility/outside the pool/pool area. (no exceptions will be made for either situation).
(6)Changing tables are provided in each pool restroom. Changing clothes or diapers of small children is prohibited on the pool deck, pool furniture, benches and locker room furniture. "
I reassured her that it would be fine and that she was fully potty trained. I stated that she normally doesn't have accidents. She told me that it would be fine aslong as she did not have a accident again considering she was not yet a student but, that she still recommends she wears swim diapers and that it's for her own good. I still turned her recommendation down. Before she started her first class I made her sit on the potty for a little while. When she started her class she pooped in her swim suit about five minutes in and some floated to the top of the water. This has never happened considering this was her first swimming class and all. Never the less the pool was shut down for a little while and as I was exiting the building with my daughter I was stopped by the lady at the front desk. She proceeded to tell me that my daughter is required to wear a disposable swim diaper while inside the pool/pool area from now on. She also told me that because of what happened she cannot be allowed inside the facility without a regular disposable diaper on. I was a bit frustrated at this and requested to speak to another lady and I was told the same thing. I've already payed all the money for the class (which by the way was a lot) and they don't refund money. What should I do?
