I’m pissed with my nursery again! The nursery where I take my daughter since she was 9 months old I mean!
Why are their rules so freaking stupid?
I will tell you why I’m saying this.
The nursery starts at 8am and finishes at 6pm. I pay the nursery for my daughter from 8 to 6 too!
However I am not able to drop my daughter before 8.00. Well let me explain…the door is locked until 8. I can only go in from 8 and it’s a nightmare then because their like a queue of people and children waiting at the door to drop their kids. So I actually leave the nursery at 8.15. By then I’m already late for work of course as I am suppose to start work at 9am! I start half an hour earlier than everybody else to be able to leave at 5pm from work. I only have half an hour break – again half an hour less than anybody else in the company. But that doesn’t bother me!
What bothers me is something else!
Roughly it takes me around 45-60 min to commute in and out from work. So if I leave work at 5pm then I should be at nursery by 6pm. But sometimes this just doesn’t work! You know how unreliable underground can be especially in rush hour! So….if I’m really late then my husband has to leave work early to pick boogie up or I will just be late. But hear this: if you are late, after they charge you with 5£ for every 10 min. So i say how dare they? They expect the parents to pick their children between 5.30-6 pm.
Because of this the days when I have to pick my daughter from nursery the half an hour lunch break is scrapped and I leave work at 4.30 pm. I mean I’m lucky as I’ve been working for the same company for the last 5 years and they know me very well.
As my daughter start nursery at 9 months old, my struggle with the rules of the nursery is not new at all but I think now I’m fed up! For the past two years I’ve been in a rush! Argh!!!
So then I ask – Are all the nurseries out there the same? Or is it just mine that’s so unreliable? Is it me that doesn’t understand the rules? Or maybe my work schedule should be more flexible? Who’s fault is it here? Maybe it’s mine! Maybe I should just be a stay at home mum??
Please tell me if you have a nursery that is the same! Please tell me that you have to do the same as me! Please tell me that you have to rush like me! Maybe like this I will not feel so….ALONE!
