    "will attend a nursery school where he will be surrounded by children who were circumcised, and it is no secret that toddlers are capable of noticing anything unusual, and enough said. " NO, that is not "enough said" Kids notice everything. They do. They are curious and good observers. They are not racist, sexist, classist etc. in their observations. They are neutral. They have to be TAUGHT to be racist, sexist, etc. If the adults were not teaching hem those things and just told them the truth, there is no difficulty. We are not ball bearings, all supposed to look the same, act the same think the same. And as for different, the ultraorthodox sure look different and can be spotted a km away. Ask any kid. Having variety is not a problem in the real world, - just the religious one.
