Derwent Valley Council has been accused of disrespecting staff by keeping early childhood educators at Valley Children's Centre in the dark about their employment future.

The council's budget slashed funding for Children's Services this year, and there is no expected income or planned expenditure on Children's Services after June 2023.

According to Australian Services Union organiser Samantha Batchelor, the decision to keep staff in the dark was typical of a council that has shown so little regard for early childhood workers.
