I don’t believe this.
The childcare centre actually rang me. To tell me about the changes to “my child’s” room next year and allowing me the option of leaving “him or her” in that room or changing “him or her to the other centre”.
Are they insane??!!??
For a start, if they can’t even refer to him by his gender, let alone by his first name, then they’ve kinda sorta not really winning me over.
Apart from the respect they’ve already lost. Oh, and my confidence in their ability to manage a centre. Well, lunch, even.
So I told her politely but firmly that he would not be returning to the centre next year.
Absolutely will not be returning.
And she didn’t even do me the courtesy of asking why.
For once, I was ready with an answer.
