Hi! i am new to this site, I practice attachment parenting, child led parenting/weaning, i tend to live on the organic/natural side of life etc etc all that good stuff. 

I stumbled upon a preschool that claimed to be organic, natural ap friendly, homeschooling friendly etc. I planned on sending my 3 and 1/2 year old son there one half day a week for socialization since we are mainly homeschooling. 

I informed the lady who runs the daycare that i selectively delayed vaccines, and that my son was indeed vaccinated but not up to date. I have not decided whether or not i want to continue vaccinating, and to be frank i have all the time in the world to come up with that conclusion. 

the woman said she would take us, and recognized the right to legal exemption but then broke my confidentiality by telling the other parents, in which they said they would all remove their children if my son went so my son was denied.

does anyone have any advice? was this even legal of her? 

thank you!

Wow, I'm so sorry she violated your confidence that way! That was really inappropriate and would make me reconsider even placing my child under her care. What a bad judgment call on her part.


There's a whole section of the forums for vaccine and vaccine-free discussions. I bet you can get much better advice (and more threadviews) over there. Good luck and welcome to MDC! smile.gif
