CHANGES to the crèche childcare facility at the PCYC gymnasium have caused tension between management and some clients.
The crèche facility provides supervised childcare as an inclusive service for parents with a gold membership to the gym, or at a cost of $4 per child while the parents are using gym facilities.
A letter sent out on October 31 entitled "To our devoted clients (Mums!)" however, has said that this will change.
The crèche facility will no longer operate on school holidays, public holidays or pupil free days.
While PCYC manager Mick Hughes is standing by his decision, several mothers have criticised a lack of communication and consultation over the changes.
Mr Hughes said the changes were a legal requirement as the current crèche could not legally facilitate school aged children as the centre would need a long care license.
Kelly Marsh has two children who use the crèche facility, one of whom will be school aged next year.
She said communication over the issue was not easy to come by.
"A lot of the mums here joined because of the crèche services. To now be told they will change - it will cause a lot of problems," Ms Marsh said.
Other mothers, who wish to remain anonymous, said they had been told "we don't care if you go; there are plenty of others to replace you".
Mr Hughes said he was worried some people may leave over the changes but he had had to weigh that up.
A petition was handed to Mr Hughes yesterday with 27 signatures of mothers who disagreed with the changes.
Mr Hughes said he had had face to face meetings with mothers, however three mothers told the Herald they had felt communication lacking.
