Quoting ymj:" Actually the daycare does allow parties. They have had them. I just dont remember them for my son's group. But the daycare has no problem with them."
Really??? To me, that seems very unprofessional, especially when a "party" usually involves other family members (of said child). Is everyone bringing in police clearance checks before being included in these parties?
B/c the policy at my children daycare and school, is absolutely NOBODY can spend extended time in the classroom without showing a valid and recent (within 6 months) police check (with the exception of one-on-one parent interviews/checking out the place for the first time) And personally, I am very, very, glad for that. I mean, you don't want to think the worse in others, but I would never allow my children to be in a place where virtually anybody can be around them (just b/c somebody is another parent, doesn't mean they are trustworthy)
