Anyway, we are otherwise in love with this preschool, and DS seems to particularly love this teacher and she's very warm towards him. Sits him in her lap a lot, very good at comforting him when he doesn't want us to leave, that sort of thing. I feel like overall the whole school is very much philosophically aligned with me. Very responsive to the children, don't force the separation between children and parents, let the kids take their time getting comfortable in the new environment, mediating disputes between the children and teaching about feelings instead of doing time-out, etc. So what I'm trying to say is, finding a different preschool doesn't seem necessary. I just wish this teacher and her co-teacher were more understanding/supportive about toddler nursing, but (surprisingly) it doesn't seem they are. Unless maybe I misinterpreted her comment and it was intended as a joke. Who knows.
