I have a question
If you send your child to daycare and they come home with snot stuck all around their noses and even on their cheeks, what do you think?
I'm not talking about picking up germs there, it's more the fact that daycare haven't wiped their noses and clearly it's been there for a while and is almost blocking their noses?
Twice DS has come home from daycare like this, from two different family daycare providers... Am I expecting too much for them to wipe his nose as they would clean his bum if he had a poo? Is this not a part of their job description?
Interested to hear others' opinions on this.
Personally I like to try my best to keep DS clean and presentable, and comfortable (so I wipe his nose etc when it needs doing as he is too young to really know how to do it himself)

Yes, I say 100% they should do this. Our daycare seems to have boxes of tissues everywhere and have never seen it as a problem.

DD often came home with some snot around her nose - I didn't think much of it. She seemed to have a permanently runny nose when at daycare so I just figured they couldn't keep up with wiping it!
I guess it might concern me if it was really bad, or very frequently.

Yep definitely. We have boxes of wipes and tissues in multiple locations around the rooms in our centre and if we see a child with snot we instantly wipe their nose, or if unable to leave what we are doing ask another staff member to assist and do it

In 4yrs I have never had my children come home with poo or snot, I would complain if they had!

Thanks I figured since its family daycare and there are only 5 kids max, surely there is time to wipe his little nose!

Not ok. I changed my ds daycare because of that. To me shows signs they aren't caring for him properly.

Jeez. I can't keep one kid's nose clean let alone 8... I used to work in child care, some days you would literally wipe every nose and then start all over again. All day long. As long as it's not happening every single day I wouldn't even notice, to be honest.
