If your child got bitten at daycare what would you do?

Nothing if it's a once off. If it's a regular thing then I'd start asking questions.
Both my kids have been bitten and have bitten kids. So I've been on both sides of this issue.

Thanks I wasn't sure what I should do/shouldn't do. It's never happened at daycare before

Meh - it happens. Probably won't be the last time either. DS has been bitten a number of times over the years.
I wouldn't worry unless it becomes regular. If it really concerns you talk to the staff. Imagine the mum whose child did the biting - they are probably feeling awful too.
Our daycare makes us sign an incident report when something like that happens, they do keep record of it. Both parents are informed (those of the biter and bitee).

Mine has been, he was 2 at the time so couldn't tell us exactly what happened, is DC didn't see the incident so no idea how it happened, they apologised & I had to sign an incident report, I didn't think it has a big deal, it happens, they're kids.

DS1 was bitten once - I was informed about it when I picked him up, and there was an incident report to sign. I didn't worry about it - toddlers bite, and it was a once off.
I'd be more concerned if I turned up and there was a mark/bruise on my child's face (or really any injury) and there wasn't an incident report.

There was an incident report and I did sign that.
Is it normal for them not to tell you who the biter was?
