    If u can take him out then please do. Ds was unhappy for a year and I didn't see it. Now he is in a centre daycare and so happy its obvious he was so sad before and that breaks my heart that I forced him to go to the daycare he hated for so long without realising..
    Try another centre.. Giving a dirty fruit bowl is unacceptable. Poor bub

    Tomorrow is his 2nd day, I'll be watching very closely, and if I still feel upset by it I will take him out. I have rung a couple of places today but haven't got replies yet.

    Agree with this. Just the fact his water bottle was empty and they hadn't offered him any fruit would have p***** me off,let alone the things he told you. I would voice your unhappiness and say you expect better, you will be dropping in randomly to check on him and if it doesn't improve you will make a complaint or pull him out. I don't think it's an over reaction when they are responsible for your child's safety, you are just being a good mother.

    Today everything I hates on Tuesday was better.

    Only problem is DS got a tiny bit sunburnt 😩 have spoken to the carer and director about it. They r waiting for shade sails to be put up in the outdoor area which apparently should be done by early feb.

    Sunburnt?
    Did they not apply sunscreen & have hats on?
    At my Dd2's daycare when i sign her in i apply sunscreen and tick next to her name that ive done it.
    It gets re-applied before they go out again after lunch.

    I put some on before I took him in, they have outside play in blaring sun 3 times per day, apparently around 40 mins at lunch time, as well as first thing in the morning and last thing in arvo.

    The carer reckons they reapply sunscreen twice. I saw the one they use, it's 50+. When we picked him up his cheek and ear were red, he had been playing in the sandpit. When I looked closer there was a small blob of sunscreen on his ear which hadn't been rubbed in, so they must have reapplied it at some stage?

    He has quite fair skin, but I have to say I've never seen him sunburnt DH meticulous at applying sunscreen on him as DH is a red head and DS is blonde and fair skinned. It is not 'bad' sunburn, but it was definitely red. Also a little red on his neck.

    He doesn't yet have a wide rimmed hat (just a peak) and that is my fault as he hasn't needed one at the last daycare as everything was shaded so I should have got a wide rimmed hat, but even so, I would have thought correctly applied sunscreen would have taken care of his ear and cheek.

    I'm going out tomorrow to buy him a couple of wide rimmed hats!

    40mins at lunch time is not sun safe at all. My childcare has shades over the yard and I still don't take the kids out at lunch time as the shades wouldn't fully protect them.

    We also have spare hats for children that don't have wide brimmed hats.
