Today I went to pick up my son from his new preschool. They were outside playing so I went through the school and as I walked out the door I saw one of the after school elementary kids push my son. My son fell back and hit his head on a metal merry-go-round. My son held his head and went up to the director/owner who was busy chit-chatting and didn't see what had happened. My son was crying and tried to explain that the other boy had pushed him and he hit is head. The director/owner got into my son's face and yelled "wha, wha, wha, wha! That is all you ever do. You cry over everything don't you! Wha, Wha, Wha!" At this point I grabbed my son and told her he would not be back. She didn't know I was behind her and she quickly turned her attitude around. I think it is sick that this adult tried to belittle a child. I want to make sure it doesn't happen to another child. Can I report her? If so, to whom and/or where?

Thank you ladies! I checked online for the regualtions for this type of preschool. I found this in the guidelines- (2) Personnel shall not: (d) Verbally abuse or humiliate a child which includes, but is not limited to, the use of threats, profanity or belittling remarks about a child or his family. I am going to print it out and tomorrow when I go get my son's belongings I will get the licensing info and hand her a copy! My blood is still boiling about this!

Good for you, OP! This woman needs a reality check. People are entrusting her & her staff with the care & welfare of thier kids. I would have been furious, especially since she didn't know you were there (she changed it up, which means she KNEW she was wrong). Plus, sje is the director? The person that is supposed to set the EXAMPLE for the quality of the care ther? OH, HELL NO! I don't know what the consequences are but, I'll bet she thinks twice. Personally, I'd call any parents I'm friendly with from the preschool & tell them what happened, too.
