    Some parenting groups have 1000's of members - I would never post something identifiable or extremely personal in them. Unless it was a private parenting group of less than 5 people all of whom the mum personally knows (in person) and trust then she shouldn't be surprised and she shouldn't complain. She posted a 'private' letter online - seriously what did she do that for if it wasn't for people to rally and say "yeah that's ****ed up." She can't complain just because the rallying has been bigger that what she anticipated.

    I've done some googling and I'm calling fake on this. If it was a real scenario someone would have leaked the centre details by now

    Totally agree with this!

    I wouldn't want my children attending a centre that only cares about maximising profit. While I understand that it's a business by the end of the day, I don't want my kids being looked after by people who only do it for the money.

    If these are the actual facts, then I think it's absolutely disgusting behaviour by the centre director/owner. But I'm not sure how accurate this information is (granted, I don't know enough about this story yet). But it says preschool in the letter - how does anyone "know" it's actually LDC?

    And it doesn't matter if you don't 'need' the hours, you're paying for them and therefore entitled to use them.

    If they did that, all staff would need to be at the centre for 12 hours and fees would be much much higher.

    The big centre I was at with DD1 just did shifts, some started at 7, some 8, some 9 etc and finished accordingly. It's not like every staff member needs to do a 12 hour shift and they're paying overtime etc.

    But the point is, all these parents are paying for 12 hours, so they would expect to be able use 12 hours of care if need be. You can't pick and choose which customers/parents are allowed 8, 10 or 12 hours if they're all paying the same.

    I agree that you are entitled to the hours you pay for, simply stating that if they accounted for ALL children staying til close, all staff would need to stay til close too

    I just read the comments to this on the Today FB page You just have to take a quick glance to see why SAHM's get snarky and defensive. Get off your lazy a@ses and pick up your kids, stop getting your nails done and sitting in the casino. Stop paying to have your kids babysat and actually get a real job.

    DS2 is 18 months and I don't see me using DC for some time as he's too clingy for me. With my other kids I never used more than 1 day a week. But wow, that thread is vicious to SAHP's.

    - And some parents were abusing that and bring slack with pick up causing everyone inconvenience?

    Surely the preschool wouldn't change the rules after the fact??? And expect people to pick up their kids at 4pm when they were paying for care until 6pm???
    This is exactly what I was thinking.. Has there actually been any confirmation that it was a LDC? I just get from the wording that the 4pm pickup is a pre-agreed requirement. Kind of like school hours, and parents leaving their kids to stay until whenever because there's after-school care..

    If it truly is a LDC and everyone is paying the same maximum hours, then it's pretty poor form on the centre's part, and I would be absolutely fuming if I was one of the parents being told to pick my kid up early.
