Are you talking about US military day care?  Oh, man!!!  I had a TERRIBLE time with them.  We lived in Germany for a while when DC was young and DH worked for DODDS schools so we were allowed to use the base daycare if we wanted.  Without saying how I really feel -- I'll just leave it as "me and the military early childhood education department did  not see eye to eye".  From my limited experience with military family programs - they operate under a different set of rules...or at least they act like they do!   Yea, I can feel your pain.  Did you try FYT for military families?  That would be where I would ask and ask before you put in any paperwork.

No, this was Kinderare. I was really pissed the nurse shared DD's whole medial record with the health department without my knowledge/consent. Then after we stopped going there I started wondering how parents do a delayed vax schedule in public daycare.  I have read on MDC that military daycares have to follow religious exemptions for vaccinations. I have no clue where the thread is, but someone posted the rules for every branch's daycare policy regarding the exemptions. Religion is on there and they can't use it as a reason to exclude your children from using the daycare.

I didn't have a problem at all.  In TX, I was able to file a philosophical exemption and pick and choose which vaxes I was skipping or delaying.  I didn't get any hassle at all from his daycare.

we never had a problem with daycare.  I don't even think they ever really look at it that closely.  we get a yellow and a blue sheet from the ped, and it has what they have had on it and thats it.  I know DD2 was really far behind for a while but as long as we kept the paper current (dated and dr signature) there has never been issue. 

 

with dd1 we got some grief last year because of the varicella.  the pediatrician signed the exemption part for her and the school nurse called and said he couldn't do that to which I replied sure he can he's the doctor, lady!    But I called the doc;s office and the MA there is a bulldog as far as stuff like that goes and I never had another issue.

The last vax my DS got was at 7 months - before that everything was according to schedule. He gets sick so often, we never even have time for a well visit, although that was not the initial reason. Following the 7 months visit and vax he had diarhea for about 5 weeks and lost weight (not sure if this was a vax reaction but I couldn't find any other reason for it). After researching, I just did not feel that for us the benefits outweighed the risks. We don't do daycare, live in a pretty stable area, don't ever travel, were ebf, and my son has severe dairy allergy, asthma and very low weight issues. DS did show some slight delay in development which I wanted to rule out anything before continuing with vax. He is 3.5 and so far I am pretty sure he has had whooping cough and is tolerant of exposure (a friend's little boy had it in sunday school for several weeks - yes she sent him to church while sick, not sure why people do this!!!) I am still uncertain how the new baby will be vaccinated - DH is not onboard with no vax, so I imagine we will be doing at least some if not all, although I am very uncomfortable vaccinating before 6 months of age. Baby will be 6 month old in October (?? not a good time to start).
