    Default Letter to non-working parents

    Yeah I agree with the sentiment on this thread. Appalling. Plus the letter was extremely rude. I assume that place is being mismanaged financially and the director is trying to get out of a hole.

    I wouldn't put my kids in daycare but if I did and i was a sahm I'd be fine to pick them up earlier. I think working mums (including work at home mums) should get first priority with daycare anyway.

    They do get priority on places. But once they're in (and paying the same) they should be treated the same.

    And completely illegal on several levels. I hope they get their butts kicked.

    Maybe as a sahm put your kids in occasional care instead of long daycare. A friend of mine has her son (2) in occasional care 3 hours one day a week and costs $15. She does her grocery shopping or appoinments.

    Working parents do get priority (after high risk children). The issue isn't working parents missing out on a place, it's the tight a$s centre not wanting to pay for the staff required for correct ratios.

    Well yes i do agree there. If you pay the same you should get the same.

    Or maybe a sahm needs the full day of care.

    This just really grinds my gears. I mentioned in the other thread about daycare the other day that I put DD2 in because I needed a break from her. I really did, my PND was out of this world and I was struggling to keep my head over water.
    If I had of received a letter like that, it would have broken me. It's basically saying "you're doing fk all during the day so come pick your kid up"

    As a SAHM I don't have an issue with priority going to working parents either. But it's illegal to a) discriminate and b) charge that family and the tax payer for a 12 hour day, then demand one group only get 10 hours of that or they are double charged for that 2 hour block.
