Ds begins next year and I'll be working 3 days a week 9-4pm. The first week he'll be 1/2 days, then following 3 weeks or so Wednesdays off. I won't be able to drop him off at the allocated time otherwise I'll be late to work (so will have to use before school care) and after school I can either ask my mum or use after school care.
Also Ds2 will be settling into kinder/public or private Childcare with kinder.
I'm thinking that for the first 3 weeks I should take time off work to get my head around drop off/ pick up locations, times, settling Ds in, talking to teachers after school etc. Also settling Ds2 in.
Once he's settled I can then introduce him to before school and after school care (which will only be 3 days per week).
My only issue is taking a whole day off just for 1/2-1 hour extra in the morning and avo. It will be impossible to start late or finish early.
What do you think?
