My daughter started preschool in the fall while she seems too like it I have several issues, they serve unhealthy food, sweets(cookies, juice, ketchup) they're playground is not that nice (dirty) they change diapers on the carpet, they dont have much physical activity.



She has been sick twice , scratched by another child and she said another child bit her. When u ask questions they have a way ofvevadingbyou. Also they pretty much push you out when you drop off. It is nice that it is close by and I recognize a lot if the mothers.

Am I being too picky??

Yes, I think I'm going to switch her for the spring- room providing there is another place that had lots of activities. Hopefully it will be better because nothing is perfect

Cindy,

I think you are using your mommy radar and that can be called instinct as well. You know something is not right. After reading your question again and seeing your update I suggest you go with your motherly instincts.

You may very well have seen more than the other mothers when it comes to bad health code habits continued by staff and poor choices in food selection by the same.

I would get out my pink highlighter and the contract/policies of the center and mark each thing that they are failing to provide for your daughter. Then I would sweetly as to speak to the person who can answer your questions and concerns. Without threat simply state that your daughters health and eating habits, and illness suffered are reasons for concern. Give them a chance to address your issues. But if your radar sees it continuing or you get any backlash or attitude then it is time to find her a better place.

Good Luck!

Yes I saw the playground but was told they were hoping to have a new one by the fall. ( now they say winter but I doubt that) they said they were hoping to have a music class ( but have not ) she is 2 ( 27 months) I have started having her go on the potty, but she is not trained yet

On the plus side she does seem to want to go there but maybecshecwould be just as happy wherever she gets to play with others.

Are you being too picky? yes and no.

I take it that you weren't aware of all their policies? That questions weren't asked in advance or that you didn't see (their) play ground before signing up?

If you want her to stay there for your convenience and because you recolonize a lot of mothers then yes you are being too picky.

If you want her to be in a better suited environment where you know that diapers will be changed in appropriate sanitary controlled area. That she will closely monitored to prevent bites and plays for long periods of time in a clean play ground, then no, you aren't being picky.



NOTE: Pre School IS NOT Day Care The agenda for preschool is socializing and learning. If the child is still in diapers that is new to me as well. I thought all preschool children must be potty trained so not having a place to change diapers would be expected. Recess is just a set amount of time each day established in the routine, so not much activity outside is also the norm. And regardless of day care or preschool, you can expect that another child is going to come into physical contact with your child in some way. It is the nature of the beast when you put little ones together. If you have more than one child you know how you can't watch them every second and someone is bound to get bit or pushed or made cry.
