Work help

Post by Ashtree22 » Thu Jul 30, 2020 6:37 pm

Hi there,

For a while now I have been unhappy in my job at a centre as there have been numerous issues (some potentially illegal that I don't wish to disclose). I feel that I try my hardest and I genuinely love the children and I feel that the children really enjoy me being there. Every week I feel less and less enthused as I find the staff very hard to work with. I have thought about switching centres, however, I want to make sure that I put a year in with this centre as I am pregnant, and won't be returning to work for a while. I haven't been in a position like this before, and this is my first role in a childcare centre. Can anyone tell me if this is something you have been through before, or if you have any recommendations for me? My spirit feels like it is being crushed with every bad thing that happens at work.

Sorry- wish to clarify that I will be entitled to maternity leave if I stay on.

Lorina just updating you, I have decided to look for other work. I am not confident about my chances due to the pregnancy, however I will still give it a go :mrgreen:

Due to the current pandemic I dont think it will be a good idea for you to work at this stage... it's crazy at the moment and I wouldn't want to risk your health at this stage especially since you're pregnant. Just really have a good think about it...
