The breach of confidentiality is very disturbing I have to say.

My ds had a wooden block thrown at his head and was bitten on the arm (teeth marks visible, but no broken skin) on the same day a couple of hours apart at Kinder. He wasn't seriously injured by the block and just had the little teeth marks on his arm, but the teacher let me know and I had to sign an incident report when I picked him up and it said that another child had done it. The teacher (who was lovely) said with a smile that she couldn't say who the child was that did it ... but as another Mum had apologised to me on the way into the room I already knew who did it! And of course my ds (age 5) told me straight away who did it, but the teacher couldn't. That boy had behavioural issues that were clear for everyone to see and was a real handful, but the teacher never directly discussed those issues with me.
It sounds like quite a serious injury though. Please go into the Dental Hospital to get his tooth checked out today as the loose tooth may not survive. It may be that one staff member assessed him after he came out of the bathroom and thought he wasn't too bad and just put him to sleep as planned, then when he woke they realised the extent of his injuries.
On a side note, what childcare centre offers children ice-cream for afternoon tea? I would definitely be finding another centre ASAP & considering reporting the current one.

I would be disgusted that I wasn't called immediately if my child had been hurt like that. I would ring and complain not only to the centre manger but much higher than that. Possibly I would remove him and find a new daycare as well. Obviously the girls mum is going to do nothing. If she isn't even concerned for her own child why would she be for someone else's kid.

The mother slapped her daughter? I hope staff saw and reported her.
Your poor little man, hope he's okay.

Wow!! Thanks for all the replies!
In regards to the llittle girl involved, most things I have witnessed, in the mornings and evenings, shes the first one to arrive at 7 last to leave at 6. I have brought up the issue with the teachers a coupld of times over the past week, as I am seriously concerned for her safety and the other childrens. She looks upset and angry all the time and I am a little heartbroken that her mother (in front of me) acts like there is no issue. With her tantrums and upset behaviour the mother just salks out and waits in the hallway while the teachers deal with it befoee going home. She needs one on one care that this centre obviously cannot provide, I knew it would only be a matter of time before herself or another child had gotten injured jbecause of this. Just a shame it had to be my son!
Regarding confidentiality, i agree 100%. The teacher who had told me that there was anothdr child in the bathroom with him, and that the form had been changed after the manager was on the phone to me. She said his room teacher was not happy about changing it (i dont think it actually said the girls name just that another child was in there also) and that i should ask my son what had happened and listen to his answer. I think all the staff are sick of the stingy management and why they are being si ignorant when it comes to this gjrl and are hoping from this injury, management might actually do their job.
Its a privately owned day care, the owners have 3 other centres and are rarely in the office. I will be taking my son out of this daycare (I have to give 2 weeks notice) and told the teachers this yesterday.
Does anyone know if they are liable to pay for his treatment as they were obviously not paying attention( it would of had to be a couple of minutes that he / and her were alone with no supervision)?
We have also had instances where he has been bitten (to the point of ripped skin and bleeding) mim1. Its not a nice feeling knowing that the kid must have been hanging on for a couple of seconds and no one noticed.
I am in sydney nsw.
I have taken photos of both teeth whichhe cannot eat from as her starts crying and bleeding again, also of his lip that his teeth split into. I took him to the doctors firrst thing after i picked him up, but it was amedical centre not my usual doctor, who advised me to take him to a dentist and wrote me a report on what she saw.
I am fuming at the fact that when she called me she was acting like it was no big deal, just a little accident and was doing fine. If i knew it was his teethfalling out and looked like they do, i would have left work straight away to pick him up!
Thanks again for all the replies ladies!!

I would remove my child and report the centre ASAP because:
He had bleeding in the mouth (obvious knock to the head) and they put him to sleep.
They told you personal/private information about another child, I'm pretty sure that's illegal but either way its wrong.
They lied on the incident report and told you conflicting stories about what happened.
Any of these things are bad alone but all three together I wouldn't trust them to look after my child.
Hope your lil man is ok.

I would not be sending my child back. I am quite concerned about their lack of confidentiality and I agree (even if they shouldn't of named the child) that they should not have changed the report.
I am also surprised that after the injury was cleaned, your child was put to bed so soon.
But most importantly the fact that you weren't contacted until hours later is disgusting.
I would report and take it as far as needed.

I'm sorry op this happened. No advise but I'm also concerned they put a kid with a head injury right to bed

I had to make a report and complain about a child care centre my girls were in after the manager lied, this was about finacial issues but the child care licencing authority were very helpful and resolved the matter promply. I also was not required to pay the 2 weeks as I took my children out immediately when I felt I could no longer trust the manager ( i did negotiate this with her but I dont think it is unfair of you to request this also, the manager I delt with was new to the centre and after only a month of being there half the staff left and the whole place was not the same.
You should be able to go to the childrens hospital emergency dept for emergency dental treatment, the one I work at does. Hope you get a resolve soon, poor kid must be in so much pain

Huge hugs op.
Your poor DS. He should not have been put to bed at all, that is very unsafe, you should have been rung immediately. IMO the injury he sustained is a severe one given his teeth have been damaged. If they had of rung you when this happened you may have been able to get him seen by a dentist. They have ignored their duty of care and the fact that the director lied to you about it is just unacceptable.
The little girl really sounds like she needs 1:1 care. She sounds violent and is putting the other children in danger.
I would also think the daycare should be held liable for any and ALL medical costs as this injury was sustained at no fault of his one with ZERO supervision and in a toilet!!!
I really feel for you and your DS.
We get a phone call from our daycare about a scratch!
