I'm a SAHM, but sometimes I have appointments on post that I cannot bring my son to. When that happens, I put him in day care for a few hours. He's 3.5 and he has not taken a nap since he was 2. I told the CYSS (child, youth, and school age services) this when I started putting him in day care. I told the "teacher" for his room this as well.
The time before last when he was there, his "teacher" mentioned that he wouldn't lay down for a nap. I explained to her, again, that he does not take a nap (some of the other kids don't as well).
The last time I took him, he wouldn't nap either (which I know he wont and have tried over and over again to explain this to this lady). She asked me, when I picked him up, to not bring him during nap time anymore.
I'm fine with that if I'm able to schedule appointments around this, but sometimes I can't...add to that, we only have one vehicle, so I really am in a bind when trying to schedule appointments sometimes.
Can I do anything about this? I mean, does she have the right to ask me not to bring him during that time? Also, I can't have him put in a different room if that matters.
*UPDATE* Thanks for the information (for those that were helpful. For the others that were discounting the information I provided, I watched the tapes during nap time. He wanted to sit in the corner and read or he wanted to sit at the table and color...but I'm dramatic and think my child does no wrong...pfft. Okay then.
ANYWAY, I called and was lucky that someone cancelled. I was able to change my appointment to a later time. He'll only be there for abou 15-30 minutes of nap time. Also, no, I'm not allowed to bring him to my appointments. They don't allow young children there because they can be a distraction.
