Mark on child's arm from school
What would you do if your very verbal 2.5yo came home with a red mark all around their wrist? I asked "what happened why is your arm red?" and my daughter said the teacher pulled her. I asked why did she pull you? She said because it was naptime. I asked her if she was in her bed at naptime she said no i was not in my bed. I asked what did you say when the teacher pulled you. She said "I didn't say don't do that" (which is what she's taught to say if she doesn't like what someone is doing). I asked what did the teacher say when she pulled you. She said the teacher didn't say anything. I talked with the teacher and the school admin. The teacher's response was that she didn't touch her, but then she went on to say that my daughter had been out of bed to get books during naptime and said "I don't remember pulling her." My husband asked my daughter the same "what happened?" question hours later (mark was still visible by 7pm although nap at school ends around 2pm) and she responded the same way. I also asked her about it the next day and she still repeated the same story. I don't know why she would make it up, and given the mark and some of the behaviors I've witnessed from the teacher previously, I'm inclined to believe it. I have already made the decision about taking my daughter out of the school (which I really liked for the most part), but I'm just thinking in addition to contacting childcare licensing should I file a police report? I really think this person is experiencing "burn out" and is unable to cope well when frustrated with small children. I would hope this was a one-time mistake but I just want to do my due diligence to protect others, especially since some children in the class are not so verbal.
