I turned up at nursery today having given them written instructions to call me if they had lost the inhaler. They told me she hadn't needed it - I showed the young nursery nurse how shallow her breathing was and was quite upset that just because she'd been playing and not laid up they had assumed nothing was wrong. I have now printed out all the advice packs for schools from this site and will be giving them to the nurseries and pre-school heads with a letter outlining my daughters specific symptoms. I'm amazed at the lack of care. i will also ask them to show me their asthma plan (there will be other parents who will be grateful for it) and if I don't get a reasonable response I'll take it up with offstead. I suggest others do the same.
