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.

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...

Hi lorina,

After having a bit of a think I am deciding that I may just stop working.

I intend on taking quite a bit of time off to care for my children once baby is born. I am worried that when I choose to return to work that my lack of experience and such a long time off will make it difficult for me to find work. 😣😣

I think you've made the right decision in regards to the pandemic. Honestly it's just not safe anywhere anymore and you need to be extremely cautious since you're pregnant.

As for your lack of experience, don't worry too much about it. When you are ready you could even start causal work to build up experience before getting full time work.

Don't rush to go back to work after the baby is born enjoy the moments! Work will
Always be there but these first few years of a child's life are the best!

I have an 11 month old and omg enjoying every second of him!! Wouldn't trade it for the world! Lol!!

Let me know if you have any questions and I wish you health, happiness for you and you bub!

Yes! You need to submit your work in order for your teacher to mark it to see if you're understanding the questions, the context, regulations etc.

If you are not showing your understanding or provide the wrong information your teacher will give you a chance to redo your assignment so don't worry.

You will fail if you don't hand in your assignments.
