    That's because it's an Aboriginal preschool and it is custom in the aboriginal community for children to call the women in their lives "Aunty" whether they are related or not. It's actually really good for DS with his speech delay. He can say Aunty but can't say all their individual names. We go to an aboriginal playgroup as well and the staff that run that are also called Aunty.

    That makes sense! Thanks for the info, when explained it's actually kind of lovely!
    I just imagined it in my kids daycare and it would be weird, but it would be nice if they had a relationship like that with the kids.

    Regardless of whether the child hurting your ds has autism etc or not, you should always be notified when your child is hurt. You won't be told by staff who did it but you should always be notified.
