After reading our preschool policies yesterday getting organised for Alexzander to start next week I'm quite surprised at all of the restrictions you guys are talking about! Our preschool is community based & gets funding from council & DOCs so they have to go by DOCs regulations. There are very few restrictions on food - no chocolate, though they can have a choc coated biscuit or choc muffin and no fizzy drinks and that's it. As far as I know there isn't a nut policy in place but the children aren't allowed to share their lunches anyway. There are recommendations on what they can have in the info pack we were given at orientation day.

As for other things, they have the usual hat policy and a no superhero capes policy.
