If the daycare says "no outside food allowed" I fail to see why this is an issue at all.

Now that's what I call lactose intolerance.

The parents got some kind of problem with the school? Why go through the extra work of making a lunch if it's against the rules in the first place?

Idiots.

Couldn't tell from the article though if it was all outside food or just peanut butter?

/beats me if there's a cheese with peanut butter in it though

You win the DNRTFA prize. It wasn't lunch. It was breakfast, but the 2-yo stuck it in her pocket instead of eating it.

Dad gave a 2 year old a cheese sandwich for breakfast?

What's wrong with that? It's portable and fairly nutricious (provides grain, dairy & protein).

Preferable to a pop-tart, I'd say.

Little cheese sandwiches! Come on!

FTFA:  Nancy Brisebois, assistant director at Centre D'Enfant aux 4 Vents, said she couldn't discuss the specific incident, but that the French-language centre clearly communicates their policy, which includes automatic expulsion for possession of peanut butter, to parents.

I could never understand that.  Does peanut butter aerosolize (or whatever) and float through the air or something?  Are all allergic kids within range of a peanut farm in mortal danger?

Meh. Honest mistake, but they agreed beforehand to the rules. Best of luck to them finding a better care provider that allows cheese.
 
2014-03-06 07:41:02 AM  
At the age of 2, the suspension is punishment against the parent, not the child. The child isn't going to care.

Yes, it was an accident, but having to take personal time for three days to watch little Sally would teach me to make sure she doesn't slip any more food into her pockets.

On the other hand, this leading to one more parent taking the time to raise their own child is probably a good thing.

They were probably upset because it was American cheese, and everyone hates America.

The peanut butter thing was poor writing. It was an example of another, more drastic rule, of the daycare - automatic expulsion if found with peanut butter. (Considering that peanut allergies can cause death...)

The child in this case was merely suspended.

The little girl was probably not going to get into Harvard anyway. Two might be a little early to shatter that dream, but on the plus side, anytime a future teacher threatens to put something on her permanent record, she can poke a chubby little middle finger in the teacher's face and laugh, "It's already ruined!"

It can.  I have had a couple of friends get (mostly mild) reactions to an open jar.

Nice.

That said, I feel that all children should be hunted with EpiPens and the ones that get up again get to live.

I more impressed that the 2 yo put it in her pocket instead of stuffing behind the car seat only to be found when Dad had to track down what was stinking up the car.

Parent neglects to read documents he signs, then whines about the consequences. That child is doomed anyway.

It's gateway packing If you let them pack the cheese in daycare, by kindergarten, they're packing fudge.

If I were to have kids, I'd probably found a free range Darwin Academy.
Anything goes with the food, and if you have a "Pre-existing" condition, no preschool for you.

And the Tee ball team would kick all the other preschools' asses.

Even the hearing the word 'peanut' or peanut butter' is enough to kill some sensitive children.

Why do you hate children?

If you have an allergy that bad then maybe you need to stay at home.  I have sympathy for allergies (my life is full of them) but at some accommodation for your disability infringes on the rights of others.  If your kid is going to die if he or she is within 100 yards of peanut butter then maybe you need to make special arrangements.

How about "throw it out and talk to the parents" instead of suspension?

Full automatic cheese sandwich up in here, with tomato soup silencer, and bonus 2% milk for added accuracy, it's good for to hit your bones.

Zero Tolerance policies are stupid and ridiculous.

And you agreed to it Dad.
 
2014-03-06 08:05:41 AM  
My children go to preschool where two weeks a year each child has to bring snacks. Cheese is perfectly fine to bring, but nuts aren't. Don't get the biatchiness in this one.
 
2014-03-06 08:06:36 AM  
"Upon enrolment, parents must sign a contract which they review and we review with them, and this contract specifically mentions that we have zero tolerance," she said.

Don't sign stupid contracts like this. That fact that they actually used the phrase "zero tolerance" in a contract proves that their staff is incapable of making intelligent, reasonable decisions. What I'm trying to say is: find another daycare.

I used to think that the most charitable explanation for all these zero tolerance policies was insurance liability but I really think the people who make these rules are just pants-on-head retarded.

You never hear about all the cheese sandwich smuggling that goes right. Just the ones that go wrong
