Canada Why? 2-Year-Old Suspended For Having A Cheese Sandwich At Day Care!

This seems a bit too much.

A two-year-old girl was suspended from a daycare in Ottawa, Canada after caretakers found she had a cheese sandwich.

And her father Randy Murray is none too happy that his daughter Faith won't be allowed back for THREE whole days! The father had originally given his daughter the sandwich to eat before daycare, but she opted to keep it instead for later.

When administrators at Centre de l'Enfant Aux 4 found the sandwich, they enforced their strict no foods policy and suspended the little girl immediately.

When the dad found out about what happened, he literally thought the school was kidding! Here's what the dad said:

“By the time she was two steps in one of the teachers saw it, handed it back to me and then the next thing you know, I'm told we're suspended. I thought they were kidding. I literally thought it was a joke. I smiled and laughed, but nobody else was smiling."

However the daycare director Deb Ducharme said their policy is NO joke! Here's what said:

"We do have children with multiple allergies and the parents are more than happy that we have all these things in place to protect the children."

The director said all parents sign off on the agreement before entering their children into the daycare program. However Randy the daddy believes that the rule wasn't made clear enough. He said:

"I didn't realize it was so strict that a two-year-old would be suspended. I didn't realize there was a giant line, and I obviously crossed it."

We can understand why the daycare has a strict policy on foods for allergy reasons, but what ever happened to no harm no foul?

The dad could've been given a stern warning instead of his daughter receiving a three day suspension.

A suspension like that may have Faith feeling as if she did something wrong, which is so obviously not the case here!

    You probably wouldn't feel that way if you ever saw a child go into anaphylactic shock. It's a policy put in place, and he knew it, to protect one child's life. It's really not hard to follow, don't give your kids snacks they are provided there anyway.

    It was an innocent mistake, the guy wasn't trying to rebel. Goodness, just tell him not to do it again, explain the severity of it, and let it go.

    I've never heard of any other daycare center that suspends a kid.
    Anyways, the father took her out and found a new daycare center with more intelligence.

    From previous *cough all posts that perez ever posts on here, I guarantee there is more to the story. You only post one side and never even the full story of that one side. Probably read half of a headline somewhere and jumped on it.

    He signed an agreement stating he would not bring food into the building, the penalty being suspension. Why is it so hard for people to believe that when he then violated the policy, it was enforced? The guy, and all those who share his opinion, are of the mindset that actions don't have consequences, and if you put media pressure on something you can get out of it. Sorry, but you are in the wrong on this one.

    I'm in Ottawa, that's the first I'm hearing of it. i think a 3 day suspension was a little bit harsh. I know daycare's are supposed to be peanut free, but cheese? what's next? fruit, milk, juice? The accomodations people are asking for are going too far.

    Re: Heather – Oh shut up. Train your kid not to take snacks from other kids. Also, the snack could be given to administrators and they could monitor the kids while its being eaten during snack time.

    I am from Ottawa and what isn't mentioned in this story is that the policy was written in FRENCH ONLY which the father didn't speak (he enrolled his child in French Daycare which isn't uncommon here). If the policy was so strict, why wouldn't it be stated in both official languages: French AND English? I get the deal with allergies but to suspend a 2 year old based on those grounds is ridiculous!

    If your kid is allergic, send an epi-pen to the school with instructions. Schools should already have many epi-pens on hand for such emergencies. It isn't the school's or other parents' responsibility to make sure your child doesn't eat what they are not supposed to. Society is breeding helpless idiots. Funny how hardly anyone in all my years of school, including college, had a food allergy. The rare ones that did, knew NOT to eat peanuts or whatever made them ill. Administrators are just out of their minds.

    Daycare is most likely simply tired of repeating over and over to all parents new and old so they made a policy with clear guidelines and consequences. Its time we all stand up for rules whether we agree or not.
    no is no. Not well maybe, kinda unsure, just this once etc.

    Re: Melissa – Yup. Ridiculous reaction from nazi daycare. His child will be better off elsewhere, imo. A conversation would have more than sufficed.

    Why is there such a strong case for an act like this in Canada and the US gets stuck with Justin Bieber??? Really…if they caught it before the dad left why not just give the sandwich back to him and remind him, even if it required a strong reminder, that this was not permitted. Does anyone use COMMON SENSE ANYMORE?
