Mum furious after son, 3, 'kicked out of nursery school' after another child 'BIT' him

A FURIOUS mother says her three-year-old son was "kicked out of his nursery school" after another child repeatedly "bit" him.

The parent, who does not wish to be named, claims her toddler returned home with a series of injuries while attending Sunflowers Too Nursery in Hessle, East Yorkshire.

She claims her son was injured within weeks of enrolling at the pre-school in January last year.

An incident report listed several other injuries that occurred over the following few months, some of which were reportedly caused by the same boy.

When the concerned mother complained to the nursery, the other child was removed from the same room as her son.

But upon returning from the summer holidays, the two youngsters were put back into the same room together from September – unbeknownst to the boy's mum.

She says she only discovered the toddlers had been put back together when her son came home with ANOTHER bite mark – and told her the "not nice boy" had done it.

The outraged mother complained to the manager regarding her son's safety – but claims she was then given a day's notice to remove her child from the nursery as her contract had been terminated.

She says she is now "disgusted" that they are ousting her son from the nursery and "excluding my child from their friends and education."

"My child has been bitten several times at nursery," the mother said. "He tells me this boy is not very nice to him and he upsets him.

"I had a meeting last year and the child was removed from the same room.

"But he got another bite this week and he told me who had done it, and thank goodness he can talk as otherwise, I would not have known he was in the same room as this child, as the nursery did not tell me.

"I emailed my concerns and I was very upset but I was not rude," she continued.

"I got a reply to say she was terminating our contract and I asked for a meeting and she repeated that she was terminating the contract.

"So, because they cannot keep my son safe, he is getting kicked out of nursery. It is disgusting."

The livid parent, who is studying to become a teacher, has now complained to Ofsted about the nursery.

She is currently having to keep her son at home until she finds a suitable alternative nursery for him to attend.

So, because they cannot keep my son safe, he is getting kicked out of nursery. It is disgusting.

"I have taken advice about the matter and was told that if I have legitimate concerns as a parent and have raised them, they should be looking into these instead of terminating my contract," she added.

In an email to the parent, the nursery wrote: "On reflection and having taken advice with regard to your concerns about the care (child's name) is receiving at Sunflowers Too Day Nursery, we have an untenable situation where everything is being questioned and you feel your child is not safe here despite us doing the utmost for all children.

"I feel the parent carer relationship has irretrievably broken down and I am therefore, terminating our contract.

"There is a four week notice period, however as you are so disappointed in the service we are providing and absolutely disgusted with my staff, this can be waived."

A spokesperson for Sunflowers Too Day Nursery said they have followed all policies and procedures under the Early Years Foundation Stage and safeguarding requirements.

"We are in communication with Ofsted who are our regulatory body and we have informed them all policies and procedures followed are to keep all our children safe at Sunflowers Too Day Nursery," the spokesperson said.

It comes after a father removed his three-year-old daughter out of a nursery school after being bitten by another child for the second time in months.

The dad was also unimpressed with the way the pre-school handled the situation and took his child out of their care.
