It was interesting the child care centre, i liked it! I just need to fill in the form and get going with application and then hopefully when i need to use them (2014) ill be able to get in!
I will ask more questions once it gets closer to the time when we need the service, but so far it looks good. Its 2 mins from our house and 10 mins from my work.
Im starved going to get lunch.
I've had a funny morning today, I'm a PA and my boss emailed me this morning to cancel all his meetings, his wife is pregnant only a couple of days behind me, so only just 26 weeks... she had pain last night at 3am so they went into hospital they are worried about possible abruption... very scary... they have sent them home now for complete bed rest. Made me get very teary.
Oh how awful AmyEL, it's always scary to hear that stuff, hopefully she is ok..!
They have sent her home so that has to be a good sign, they would have transferred her to the maternity hospital and had her on rest there if it they where really concerned.
Hi SL, I'd go and put your name down at all of them now for an expected 2014 start... It's never too early. If you are planning in having a year off and going back to work? Then you can leisurely check them out and have more choice when you do decide. I'm in HR and have seen SO many mothers have to delay return to work (when they wanted to come back) because Chilcare was not available... It puts added financial and emotional strain on people at a time that this transition can be difficult. There is a 2 year wait list here! It took me 2 yrs to get my dd into the centre I wanted. My name has been down at the centre since this baking baby was 12 weeks! :-)
Ooh hope that didn't come across as a "you should"! Didn't mean it to, just from experience I know it can be hard to get care and if you have to compromise (ie: sending your darling children somewhere you are not completely happy with) it can be extremely distressing for the parents and distracting....
