To recap past editions of this daycare soap opera, I repeatedly give the toddler teacher instructions on Julia's feeding, complete with a therapist report in writing that backs up the need for bottles still. And the toddler teacher does whatever she wants, including giving Julia water all day and feeding her when I give special instructions that she has a medical procedure that day and can't be fed.
I find another daycare that will take her. I submit my nice resignation letter, and then the daycare director says that the toddler teacher hasn't been sharing any of this information with her.
For the past day, I've been in continuous contact with the daycare director. She now understands our feeding issues. She has gotten in touch with their consulting nurse. She's made a food log. And she has moved the toddler teacher to a different room and moved the 2-year old teacher in with the 1-year olds.
This wasn't my intent - to move the staff all around. My intent was for Julia to be fed by bottle if she can't drink enough by cup. The therapist wants a more comprehensive food log. Some of the time it isn't even noted if she ate any of her snack or lunch on her daily report as it is now.
The 1-year old teacher will be with the 2-year olds, and the 2-year old teacher will be with the 1-year olds starting Monday. All because of this fiasco.
I don't know how the specifics played out. Not sure if the director unilaterally decided, or if the 1-year old teacher was given the option. I'm just bummed I screwed up the work lives of 2 people. I don't want to be The Most Hated Daycare Parent. I want my kid to be fed per the therapist plan. The toddler teacher was struggling with it. Granted, she does have a lot on her plate.
