Not ok. If it was just once I wouldn't worry but if it's ongoing I'd be concerned.

That is sad. Poor little guy.
I work in childcare and would never leave a child caked in snot! It's part and parcel of the job, you just do it. If it is obviously visible and he is only one of five kids, then the carer is being neglectful IMO...

How old is your DS....could you start to teach him to blow/wipe? I think DD was about 3 before she'd get the blow/sniff part correct though
As an FYI - My DD has been to 3 different centres (due to us moving locations) and each of their policies are for the carer to put on gloves to wipe noses, then pull glove off so tissue is enclosed then throw in the bin...before moving to the next child. That in itself looks like a full time job that I know I couldn't keep up...but seeing snot all over their faces makes me heave.

Yeah I wouldn't be happy with that. Our centre has a policy that if they have to wipe the same child's nose more than 3 times in about 20 mins, the parents get a call to come and get them. My DS seems to pick up every bug that goes around, so I think that's a good thing!

If it was a once off/rare thing I wouldn't put too much thought into it.
A regular occurrence I would be speaking to the carer.

I would not be impressed at all and would have to say something about it.

If it was a regular occurrence then yes I would be upset. I know I have trouble with DD as she runs away before i'm finished and often ends up with it smeared across her cheek. She turns it into a game. She's had a runny nose on and off for the past few months but she goes to long daycare so I would expect with the whole glove process it wouldn't be easy to keep up with all the runny noses.
