A letter sent home from an Australian preschool telling non-working parents they need to pick their children up earlier has outraged mums and dads.
An image of the letter was posted to a Facebook group with the caption: ‘What would you do if you were a SAHM (stay-at-home mum) and asked to pick your child up earlier because they didn’t have staff, or didn’t want to pay overtime to staff? Is this reasonable or discrimination?’
The preschool was not named, but the mother who posted the note said non-working and working parents pay the same daily rate at the centre.
Many commenters agreed that parents at home should be able to collect their children earlier, and not drop them off before 9am when working families need it most. While others argued why shouldn’t they? After all they are just as deserving and pay the same fees.
