On behalf of all working parents who have young children, it has been difficult for us to juggle between childcare and work, especially now that the recommendation for staggered working hours and work-from-home arrangement has been lifted for both public and private sectors.
With day care centres slowly re-opening, with limited capacity still in place, those of us who are left out have no choice but to take emergency or unpaid leave just to take care of our toddlers.
Those with financial means are able to hire domestic helpers to look after their children.
However, not all of us have the luxury to entertain such an option.
We hope to see more day care centres reopening soon, because our current arrangement isn’t sustainable.
