Hi, I went to pick up my 4 year old son from kindergarten this afternoon just before 3:30pm and as the kindergarten closes after the school has finished there wasn't many parents/children about.
The kindergarten is right at the end of the school building and you have to access it through a door which leads onto the front of the school's playground.
Basically I took my 1yr old daughter to pick up my son 5 minutes before closing and usually leave her in her pushchair outside the glass door as there's very little room to bring her into the classroom and many parents do the same, but this time I took her in as there didn't seem to be many parents about obstructing the coridoor etc, but I did notice a young baby in his pram opposite the door and his mother was inside the classroom away from the door with her older child talking to the teacher.
Usually I'm in there for a good 5 minutes doing the same, but this time my son ran to me and we had a unusually pretty quick exit after briefly asking the teacher if he'd been good etc.
Anyway literally as I was about to step outside the door, I noticed a man wearing dark clothing with a big coat, boots, wooly hat pulled right over his head, and a thick scarf pulled right up to his nose, topped off with big thick glasses (it look like he was trying to hide his face) coming towards the kindergarten and within a second of me stepping outside the door he quickly turned around and changed direction and very quickly walked away.
It just seemed weird why he would be coming all the way to the end of the school if he wasn't collecting any children, and it wasn't like he was waiting for anyone as I saw him make a sharp exit out of the school grounds once he saw me. He was also over dressed, as it wasn't cold enough to be wearing all the winter layers he had on, it just seemed like he was trying to disguise himself, and I had this really weird feeling, which I've still got like something was wrong.
I didn't think to report it at the time, but since I've come home and thought about it more it's started to worry me and I'm wondering if it's just me being silly as it could have just been innocent and that I'm looking into things too much.
Whta do you think I should do, do you think I should worry?
