*sigh* Why does this teacher lie? Why does the director always back up her teacher when it's obvious she's lying?
N has very, very fair skin, so she has sunscreen to put on before they to to out to play. Every teacher she's ever had has had at least 5 kids who needed sunscreen before going outside. They put it on, no big deal. N's daycares have always said they are happy to put sunscreen on the children if you provide it and sign a release.
Except this teacher. Every single time I pick up N, it's right before they go outside. A lot of times, I wait while she plays a bit (she loves their huge playground set) before we leave. Every single time the teacher says to line up to go outside. Every single time the kids line up, then go outside. Never once have I seen them put sunscreen on any of the kids, and there are at least 4 kids who have sunscreen there with their name on it.
Every single time, I remind N to put on her sunscreen, take her over to the shelf where it's kept, then help her put it on. Then, the teachers will come over and put it on the other kids who have it there. Both of the teachers have told me that they always forget. The last time I was there, another girl in the class came over to me and said, "My mommy sent sunscreen for me too, but teacher never puts it on." She said it right in front of the teacher and the assistant. They didn't say a word. I told her that she should remind her teachers to put it on in case they forget.
Today, a reminder email was sent to the director to ask her to please make sure N gets her sunscreen gets put on before outside play time. Her response was that she spoke to the teacher and "the teacher said she always applies the sunsreen to the children who bring it." What a crock of crap. That teacher is 100% lying and she knows I know it.
No need for advice on this one, just venting. We're counting down the days until N is in a better daycare!
