Personally i cant see what all the fuss is about, how can you tell how long a child has been in a soiled nappy, some of them are quite happy to run around with a soled nappy and dont even notice. Do they watch for them grunting then set the clock going. How can they time such a thing.
And please dont reply by saying 'how would you feel ..........'
Ask some of your grannies what used to happen in the 'olden' days,
They could probably make your hair curl.

I agree it does seem crazy to ring parents but think about the facilities a school has available??? This isnt a day nursery.
I am a nursery teacher we have a ratio (for our 3 year olds) of one adult to 13 kids.
Of course we change them if they wee but if they poo and are in a mess it is very hard to clean tham as we are not allowed to wipe them, have no where to lie them down and can not give them baby wipes. On the other hand I wouldn't leave them covered- I would try to get them to clean themselves as best as they could and put on clean clothes and then if necessary contact parents to do a more thorough clean. I am not allowed by my teacher to do anything else
However if there is a diagnosed medical need (eg. we have a child with downs) then a care plan should be made (wihich may or may not involve getting funding for extra support) which would haave a clear plan in place for these instances- hope this helps

I work in a nursery school. We have a few new children who are in Trainer Pants. If they have an accident we change them - never ring their parents & ask them to come in & do it !! I think that's ridiculously silly !. All it does is make the child feel bad & guilty.
All our children have spare clothes on their pegs, so when a child has an accident we just change them. can't see the problem your poor daughter.& you
