  1. Glad to hear it wasn't chickenpox, but I couldn't imagine not watching children of any age while they eat. My six-year-old squirms at the table so much, I'm convinced he will choke one day.

  3. My word! It's just one thing after another for you! How awful! I don't keep up for a few days with your daily blog and come back to what has been nothing but chaos for you. I hope Finley is feeling better and so sorry for all your ills and troubles. Hope all are on the road (in a bentley to boot!) to recovery!lauren

  5. What a nightmare! I think putting Finley in another daycare situation is quite a good idea. I don't care what their excuse is–children should have a monitor at all times. The very idea of allowing any number of children to eat on their own gives me frightful goosebumps. You're absolutely right, they could choke or something. And these folks are professional childcare workers? I think not!

  7. Why didn't I think of that when I was working on the hospital wards. Yes all the nurses could go for their tea together, we could all chat and catch up! Okay there was one small problem, there wouldn't be anyone to look after the patients. Now maybe I'm just plain silly but surely it is just the same with children. Alison, I think not only do you need to find a new GP but also a new nursery, sweetie. Hope you and darling Finn are well!

  9. I'm sure as a childminder Ofsted wouldn't be impressed one bit if I left the children to help themselves whilst I had a brew and a biccie!As for an not needing an apology as she didn't realise the gravity!Well again I'm sure that's her job to know!ALL medical information should be recorded and understood by all concerned ignorance is not an excuse.Nurseries sometimes make me so mad!Can't you find a nice childminder?Glad it's not the pox but sorry to say it won't be long before it is!

  11. Phew! How terrifying. Though happy that it's not the pox (yet). Add me to the list of people who can't believe they're letting tinies eat unsupervised. Makes me glad for the Minx's excellent nursery school (though I'd be even happier if I still had use of the arm and a leg I've had to surrender to pay for it…)Hearing any better?

  13. Grrrr, just reading that made me so mad, to think no one is there while the children are eating?! And their blase attitude?!Well thank God he doesn't have chicken pox, but poor little love felt so sick, and you were so sick at the same time … update us on what you find out about placement at the Montessori school, one of my good friends has her little ones in one and LOVES it…

  15. Alison,What a time your family has had. What a response from the nursery, amazing that they don't take on what should be their job!
    I agree time to move Finley where he willbe in no harms way.
    I hope this will be a better week for all!
    Thinking of you, Joanna

  17. I just can't believe it – refund on nursery fees? Poor Finley how awful for him to unnecessarily go through this. He must be a little itchy now too.

  21. I'm so sorry to hear that this all happened Allison. We have similar problems with my son's previous daycare. They gave him a triple dose of his medication (he had chronic ear infections at the time). Apparently the girl, even though I wrote in the med book what to give him and when, thought that she was supossed to give him all the doses at once. Thankfully when I called the pharmacist up, they said it would not cause harm. However, we pulled him out of that day care that day, never to return.The owner was much easier to deal with. She rang me up at work to apologize, told us her plan for chaning their system as to how the meds were administered, and even offered us a discounted rate should we ever wish to return. Which of course we don't, but clearly she handled it much better than your nursery did. I have to admit that should I have been in a situation where I was told they didn't feel the need to apologize someone would have had to physically restrain me.
