Hello everybody! I need a piece of advise. This year my daughter went to Kindergarten. I found out that about 20 minutes in the mornings and during a dance class they are sitting on the floor (not on the carpet). I'm very concerned about the issue. The room where the kids are sitting is a big hall, doors are constantly open. I asked the teachers why the kids are on the floor. They told me it is easier to control them while they are waiting for a teacher. Is this practice common? What solution I can offer to the teachers? Should I buy a mat? Can my child use a mat during these "waitings"? Maybe you can suggest what kind a mat will be appropriate? That you. I feel really upset. After a first week of school my kid got a running nose and a cought. I do not want her to sit on the floor during winter months. She can get more problems after that than just a flu. Maybe I am wrong, but help me please to find the way out of this situation.
