I was listening to the local TV news, and a story came up about the preschool where my daughter goes. A parent had told the TV station the childcare center informe her that they were working with Social Services to investigate and "alleged incident" and that a teacher was temporarily suspended. I called the center because I was concerned, and all I was told was that because of confidentiality, I couldn't be given any details, and that the center was working with the county to resolve the issue. I'm assuming I would be told if the incident involved my child, but would I be informed if the teacher helped out in my daughter's classes if she wasn't involved in whatever's going on?
I'm trying to keep this in perspective, but I feel guilty now, and just upset. I sent my daughter to preschool because I thought the other kids and the activities would be good for her, and they have been. But it's hard, kissing your baby and hustling her out the door every day to be looked after by someone else, and then hearing that something might be amiss. And next year she'll be in the wider world of kindergarten ... it's making my heart race and my stomach queasy.
Where's the bubble wrap? I think I need a child-sized piece! Maybe 45 inches long, and enough to rap up a 35-pound five-year-old!
