Anyone at Swannanoa Preschool?

Post by Middy » Wed Feb 18, 2009 7:47 pm

Soph has just started going there 2 mornings per week, and they said they had recently changed their policy and would no longer use cloth nappies. I didn't bother to give them the rant about MCNs at the time of enrollment (I was just leaping with excitement that we actually got a PLACE!) but I'm thinking I might now.

Anyone else attend and want to take it on with me? Or have advice about what to say?

I'd ask them for a detailed explanation of why they'll no longer accept cloth when they were previously, then explain point by point. It may just be ignorance about how easy they are??

Middy I just had a phonecall from Kodi's centre, that the Health Inspector had commented about the cloth nappies. They are in a bucket, contained and are dealt with by me! I ended up saying to them about the Health people that they are more "hygenic" than disposables as if you read the fine print of disposables it says the solid matter should be disposed of in the septic system - tell me how many people do that? With cloth you are forced to appropriately deal with all solid matters, and untreated sewerage isn't ending up in landfill like it is with sposies!

Make it easy for them, show them, and provide somewhere for them to put them used, I have a zipped bag.
