Mrs T, I mentioned in my previous post that my DS is starting preschool next year. He is very close to being formally diagnosed with ASD.
The preschool I've sent him to will access funding so that they will have an extra carer to assist him when he attends. I've been joking about him having his own personal assistant
The preschool he's attending is a non-profit one. I was strongly advised to go with a non-profit facility as I was informed that kids with special needs often don't get the same attention and care that they do in a 'for profit' facility.
I can't say from experience if that is the case or not, but what I can tell you is that the preschool we are sending him to is completely welcoming and accepting of our little guy and his needs, and it makes me feel so relieved and happy for him.
Your centre should be accessing funding to get an extra support person.

Add in the fact that the director is never there and I would be finding a different centre asap.

I would too Mrs Tickle. After everything you explain I think the way the CC carers handle the situation is appalling

Hugs OP. Its very difficult, i understand as i have two children on the spectrum.
Honestly i'd try to find another centre that are more experienced in dealing with your child's additional needs.
Ive been through 3 bad centres who just had NO clue.
Community based preschool has been a godsend for us. The best thing we ever did for our 5yr old. so accommodating to everything. Their rules didnt and dont apply to us and he has a full time aide.

OP, I would definitely put your concerns in writing and would probably pull my child out TBH. It seems like the centre is not willing to work with you at all and have little knowledge about ASD. If they aren't willing to work with you to change things you aren't happy about then I would pull him out

If i was in your situation id first try and negotiate with the centre manager to see if any middle ground could be found regarding food.
Otherwise id look around for a centre that you pack your own food for

Perhaps it's different in different states but I'm confused why you've been refused funding. . Or rather the Centre has. I'd be asking to see the application and subsequent refusal from the department. Makes little sense when there is a diagnosis present.
