So I don't have an issue with the fact he's a DS with blue glitter nail polish but I didn't let DD have any make up, nail polish etc until she was about 5 and I was quite adamant on that. We've just moved DS from family day care we've been at for 7 years with 4 kids to childcare centre and this is what he came home with. Is this normal??? I'm kind of struggling with childcare thing and this does not help!

Childcare putting nail polish on 2y old DS?

That's odd isn't it! I am not sure from the childcare aspect, but I would be more concerned about my 2 year old putting wet fingernails in their mouth. I was funny about my girls having nail polish until they got to a certain age too...I mean, isn't nail polish toxic?

I didn't want D having it as I don't want her growing up too fast so we were really strict on it until she really really wanted it. Now ahe hates it. Loves the idea of make up and hair and naol polish but put it on amd she's taken it off 5 minuses later. She'd rather be in the garden catching grasshoppers. Anyways back to DS..so I'm not sure if I should ask them not to so it or not. Am I over reacting?

Dd1 (3) likes and wears nail polish but that's my call to make, not a child care centre. A very risky and dumb move.
Do they intend in removing it too, or supplying you with remover? Actually, glitter nail polish is very hard to get off.
They really shouldn't have.

That's a no no from me. Also from a whs issue. Due to fumes were not allowed to put on nail polish in the office.

I don't mind if DS wears it but I agree it is not ok for childcare to do it without permission. I'd speak to them about it.

Def not something Childcare should be doing.

Our daycare does it.. I don't mind it.. They sometimes face paint or spray hair colour too. I think it's fun but that's me. I understand some parents may not like it

I'd be more concerned about the safety aspect of it. I'm surprised they even have it in the centre tbh. And yes now you're expected to take it off? As others have said it's hard to get that glittery stuff off and you have to use horrid acetone type stuff which I wouldn't want a 2yo to inhale.
It's no big deal but maybe make a comment when you're next in about how horrible it is to get off and that your eldest isn't even allowed to have it - that might get the message across, without having to make a formal complaint.
If you do want to take it further, make an official complaint to the director rather than the room carers etc. Day care centres are so strict these days I imagine it would be going against some policy so they'd have to act on it.
