DD said that the kids didn't want her to play on the playground, which worries me, but I haven't been able to clarify that with anyone? She has also said she has had sand thrown at her and the same girl spat at her and others. Everything I've gotten has been from the mouth of a nearly 4 year old.
On Thursday I may go in ultra early and see if I can grab a few minutes with both the aide and the teacher. I have to talk with them both as they both deal with different things. Aide does the toileting and helps with lunch etc, and the teacher with their activities. I want to know how she is going with the activities, if she is even participating, as she hasn't brought anything home as yet, and I know every day they do something to bring home.
I wish she was in Cs class!!!!

Yep LPH, 4yo kindy. We don't even have an attendance roll. It's a very new school, maybe they are still ironing it all out?

C said "Someone push me, and teacher tell him no" or something like that, so it would concern me with all these incidences she mentions like being pushed and spat on etc, but noone is picking up on it? where is the teacher when this is happening.
Listen to London, she knows where its at!

In schools I have worked in, the teacher marks the roll after the bell goes or there abouts. I would schedule a meeting to address all your concerns, all of which are legitimate and valid. Good luck.

I'm nearly finished my degree in early childhood and I find no form
of communication very weird !! we are drilled in that communication is the top priority even from first year! they should either be having a class communication book or single ones taken home ( the preps at work have this that the teachers and parents can wrote in and send back to school), or even a general daily recount written where kids are signed out !! I'd definintly be booki an app with teacher

Book an appointment. You can be 'nice' about the fob-offs but still get your point across if you very sweetly ask for a time for you both to sit down together that will be convenient for her when there will be less distractions. Have your concerns written down and make your way down the list.
About the roll: If its done electronically on the computer as in WA, it might be completed once the first activity starts and the children are busy, and the teacher or aide can get to the computer. Personally, I find that calling out who is at kindy is a great little activity. Waiting your turn, name recognition, prediction, clearly answering "here" etc.

I would definately make an appt with the teacher! The aide might not be able to answer your questions due to centre policy!!

Not sure if going early is going to help. Normally in the mornings, the teachers are busy preparing for the day and you will be on a time limit because the bell will eventually ring and the day will start. Its better to catch her after school...if you want to make an appointment, when you drop your DD off tell the teacher you would like to speak with her after school once the other kids have left. Then, when you pick DD up, just walk into the class as the kids are ********* out, and stand off to the side until they are all gone then approach the teacher.
Dont be shy to go into the class....its supposed to be a safe space for your DD, and a welcoming space for parents. Try be brave and confront the teacher with your concerns. Get all the answers you want...she has a duty to report to you and answer your concerns.
