A Family Protests the Appointment of a Teacher who is a Man - What Advice Would You Give to the Early Childhood Centre?

question mark good

An early childhood centre manager asks:

"After informing our parents that 2 new teachers had been appointed for the start of term, a mother said she did not want one of these teachers, a man, to have any contact with her daughter and that she must never be in the same group with him.  We agreed to her demands as she said she would take her daughter out otherwise but we are feeling very uncomfortable about this.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated thank you".
