Can I clarify what people are talking about when they refer to discipline? Are we meaning physically?
Because they should have some protocols in place to either withdraw a violent child or else remove other children to a safe place.
They should have consequences in place (discipline) for misbehaviour - this can include sending the child home if he is endangering others.
I don't buy the response that they can't do anything.
OP I would broach the incident reports by asking that in future any incidents involving your child are documented in writing with a copy provided to you. Then you can add that you thought they had a legal obligation to document any physical incidents, especially if they have administered first aid, in case there is a need for legal and medical follow up, and you're surprised not to have signed anything so far.
Good luck. It's daunting I know but just remember you are your child's biggest advocate and you have every right to question his care.
My centre will exclude. I remember when DS1 was about 15 months he had been made to sit on the mat with a carer instead of dancing with everyone else because he was hitting.
