I am so annoyed this evening. After picking Little B's kindy because of it's eco-credentials they have gone and done something really dumb. Over the school holidays they painted the entire inside of the kindy....in toxic high VOC paint.
Luckily, both the kindy teacher and assistant called me yesterday and today to warn me. As did another mother who had gone in yesterday to do some fundraising work. I went down this afternoon to check it out (read smell) for myself.
The smell knocks you over before you even walk through the door. Now with a child with multiple chemical sensitivities, this means that Little B will be unable to attend kindy for pretty much all of Term 3 :-(
So this afternoon has been a mad scramble to see if he can get in anywhere else for the term (no mean feat). We are off to view one kindy tomorrow in the vain hope it will be suitable. Otherwise, we will just join another playgroup, do some fun classes and play.
But tonight I feel victimised, frustrated and angry. You wouldn't catch people painting walls with peanuts or eggs, but chemical sensitivities are viewed as fish slapping escapades.
