Earlier this week and today, one of the coworkers had her 3 year old boy at the office.
What?! A 3 year old at the office. Yes, folks there are those out there and here’s the reasons its employer approved.
- It’s a small office. To give you an idea, we rarely have “outsiders” aka customers/clients come in. Only once did we in a 6 month period and the sales reps that we are the vendors of came in within the last month to go over the new product lines that we carry.
- The employer wants her to work there, and all the staff for that matter. Not just saying “I want you to work here,” but deep down meaning it. As a background: the mom is in starting school on the weekends soon and that’s the only way she can work without spending what she makes on daycare.
- Ultimately though, the kid is very well behaved for a 3 year old. When I mean well behaved, I mean it. He was taught right from the start. He’s one of those kids that the parents could go to a dinner, anywhere, and they would get complimented by the staff.
I’m off to work for Day 2 of Daycare @ Work. TGIF!
