Girl, 2, Suspended From Daycare For Bringing In Cheese Sandwich

BARRHAVEN, Ontario (UPI) — An Ontario father said he believes his 2-year-old daughter’s daycare overreacted when they suspended her for three days for bringing in a cheese sandwich.

Deb Ducharme, director of the Centre de l’Enfant aux 4 Vente daycare in Barrhaven, said the center has a strict ban on bringing in outside food because a number of the 148 children served by the daycare have severe food allergies, the Ottawa Sun reported Thursday.

“We need to ensure their well-being and safety. Most parents are comfortable with our rules because it creates a safe environment for their children,” Ducharme said.

Randy Murray, whose 2-year-old daughter, Faith, was suspended for three days Monday when she was found to have brought a cheese sandwich into the daycare, said he believes the policy is too strict.

“I’m speechless. I wish they had handled it differently,” Murray said. “They freaked out. If I got a warning, I’d admit my mistake and move on. But it seems they want to penalize the parents. There’s no logic to it. I’m going to the media because I think people have to speak up when something’s fishy.”
