Home Forum In the classroom male discrimination we are in the same shoes


Hi There,

I worked with preschool age group for 2 years. My boss told me not to be alone around children during toileting and sleeping.

I felt like a shit. She said that parents don’t understand why there are male workers in daycares. I didn’t agree with her and I told her that this is a discrimination so I left my job.
Basically, my boss told me to shut up and do what I have to do. This is one of the best (top) daycares in Ottawa, Ontario. One of the oldest and most respected etc. I remember that I said to her to put hidden cameras everyone because I, as an ECE, will do my job 100% or I will quit.

Now, I am working with school-age children in a different place. But still I am thinking of moving on and doing something else.
