Some kids won’t go if someone is right there watching them on the toilet. I find they’ll go if I step out of the room....I guess the pressure is off.

My group is SUPER into preschool board games. It does help that 5 out of my 6 are within six months of each other, age-wise.

The favorite has been Zingo for quite awhile now.

I’ve heard of so many pediatricians who say everything looks fine. Honestly, I don’t think they typically spend enough time interacting with the children to really see what’s going on.

I don’t see it in the regs for centers in Texas. It’s not in the regs for homes. I clean mine daily during nap, and if I have a spare minute I’ll do a quick swipe with a disinfecting wipe at other...

I’ve had the Sprogs stackable cots a little over a year, and have been happy with them. I bought them on Amazon in a pack of six.

I’m seeing that now—you’re right. However, if they’re just spraying with Lysol, and not cleaning first, they’re still not following procedures.

I do agree about the disposable seat covers.

We’ve had a few providers have a sale when they retired. They informed the providers in our local daycare association, and they were allowed to go shop first, then the public.

Right! And it leaves a lot of things open for interpretation by the licensing reps. One may be fine with something, and next time another will write a provider up for it.

Here are the state guidelines for sanitizing surfaces. Oddly, the procedure for cleaning a toilet isn’t specifically mentioned. I’m guessing your child’s daycare is doing this on their own. I’m...

I’m in Texas. I’m not sure why they’re using Lysol....like Cat Herder said above, it’s not an approved method of cleaning/disinfecting toilet seats.

It seems they could at least wipe the toilet...

I would require a doctor visit and signed release to return to daycare. That doesn’t sound like something I’d want to just wait and see on!

I’m in Texas, too! There used to be a center here called the Tiny Texan. I thought that was cute. Of course in West Texas, anything tumbleweed related would be appropriate. Lol
