    Were they just saying 'there's been a confirmed case' or were they using it as an example of what not to do, ie 'we had one child with CI please don't send your kids etc'.

    It's pretty standard practice for daycare centres to send out a notice when there has been an infection - ours does so for conjunctivitis, head lice, hand foot & mouth etc. It never mentions which child or even which room, just that there has been a confirmed case. I think they have to do that?

    Regardless, they should've let you know the notice was going out, assuming of course they were referring to your DS.

    Our Centre does this for pArticular illnesses / conditions, like the obvious ones like whooping cough and measles, and others which are really contagious like head lice and HF&M. They will often identify which room it is, I like this as I know if my daughter suddenly develops a rash I would consider that she's potentially been exposed to measles, for example. I don't think they're having a dig at you.

    they referred to his room, not him personally.

    he's had a blocked tear duct for a while, something I'd explained to the educators quite a few times. I even took him to the gp about it and said do we need chlorsig and she assured me no, it's a blocked duct and gave me a referral for a pediatric opthamologist.

    I get the reasoning behind the email but I'm a bit flabbergasted some daycare worker has taken it upon themselves to diagnose a medical condition? sorry you're a gp on the side too?

    Oh sorry I thought you meant that he had actually been diagnosed with conjunctivitis and you'd old the Centre. Any chance another child could actually have had conjunctivitis and it isn't a reference to your son?

    OMG this is me. The sound of people eating loudly, or even worse - seeing someone chewing gum can ignite pure rage in me and put all sorts of violent thoughts into my mind.

    It's not to say they are refering to your child. There could be another child with conjuctivitis.

    I think it's good the centre keep parents informed about infectious illnesses.
