    What the heck are THREE year olds doing with thumbtacks anyway? Umm the teacher is NOT providing a safe environment...

    She does not want to be bothered with your child. Too bad for her..

    Go higher..

    Witchypoo, I know which person should withdraw from that Kinder and it's not your son.

    I am very sorry to hear you sound so optimistic and excited for your son,only to read how despondent you are over how you were spoken to, and rightly so if you got the distinct impression you will need to withdraw your son.

    Regardless of which state you're in (in this case VIC) your son was discriminated against and the blatant disregard for any type of case plan or action for his unique needs is deplorable on their behalf and if you so choose, you can definitely seek disability advocacy support on his behalf to advise you on where to go from here.

    If it were me, I would be withdrawing him anyway, as I could not settle leaving him there knowing that his caregiver(s) are begrugingly working with him when it's been made very clear that they would rather not. Again, I am sorry his first Kinder experience and yours, was not as you would have hoped.

    My son is in 3 yr old kinder and has funding for an aide 2 days a week. she is there with him from 9-1. So it is possible.

    Dont put up with this bullying discrimination tactic

    I've been thinking abt this a lot lately. Having been thru something similar myself I really feel for you. It's pretty horrible the way you have described it.

    Is it possible that the kinder were saying that they didn't have the resources to accommodate and properly support your sons needs. (that would still not be nice to hear, but may mean that the intent of the kinder teacher was not to exclude your son)

    Sometimes I think it can be better to look a bit further at what other options exist, such as a kinder that may be better equipt and resourced to accommodate your child's needs, than to stand up for your rights and fight the establishment.

    Id prefer to know my child was with carers who really cared about them, than try to prove a point by standing up for my rights in a centre that would prefer it if my child wasn't part of the group.
