My 22mo daughter came home from daycare today with not one, but two bites on her. One really nasty one on her arm and the other on her leg. Im absolutely disgusted and very disappointed with her daycare right now. This isn't the first time either, its now he third occasion this has happened in a matter of months.
I need some advice on what's the best way to approach this common issue please.
Ive taken photographic evidence and I know they have completed an incident report and talked to her father about it today when he picked her up. Im going to speak to the director tomorrow morning (hopefully im in a good mood) to obtain copies of the incident reports (from all 3 occasions!) and to find out if its come from a known biter, if the parents are aware and how it is being managed by the daycare centre. From there, im thinking of making a formal written complaint.
Also taking her out of the particular daycare centre is not an easy option at this stage as we both work.
I completely understand that kids that age can go through a biting stage and it can be horrible for the biters parents and not easy to manage. But as this is the third time she's been attacked, I believe that its occurring due to inadequate supervision. I mean if a child is a chronic biter, then in my opinion they need special care and extra attention (ie never take your eyes off him/her when playing with other kids). "Oh well it happens" is just not going to cut it for me!! Its just not acceptable!
Is there anything else I should do??
