    My commute to work is 5-10 mins (the next suburb). When I go back from mat leave I'll take DS to my parent's house (20 mins), then take DD to school (20 mins), then go to work (another 20 mins). So we'll probably leave home at 7:50 ish for a 9am start at work.

    I'll work 3 dpw 9-5ish (I'll probably have one late appointment per week).

    My mum will have DS and pick DD up from school. DH will pick the kids up on his way home as he finishes work before me.

    I work FT and our childcare centre is a 30 second drive from home which is wonderful. If i leave the centre at 7:35am it takes me 15 minutes to drive to work. If i leave at 7:40am it takes me 25 minutes! On the way home is usually about 15 minutes so it is not too bad.

    I've got 3 children aged 5, 3, 1. I work 3 days a week (Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays) 8:30-2:55.

    It used to take me an hour from leaving home to get to work including daycare drop off.

    This year, my eldest child started school and I have to do 2 drop offs, so it takes a bit longer. My work is 50km from home, but I live near the city and drive against the traffic.

    I drop my eldest at before school care at 7:30 on the days that I work. It is 2 mins from my house. I leave home at 7:25, drop her off and then it tajes about 35-40mins to drop my other 2 at daycare. Then about 15 mins to work from there.

    I have put in a transfer for work to be closer to home. I have deliberately chosen schools within 15 minute drive from my house. At the before and after school care on the grounds of the school, they also have a daycare. My other 2 children will go there next year, but my baby can't go there as the minimum age is 2.

    I pick my daughter up from after school care at 4, except Mondays, I pick her up at 5 as I have a meeting after work.

    To work is 20 minutes.

    Home depends on what time I leave. If it's before 5. 15 minutes home, or 25 minutes via daycare (daycare is in the opposite direction to work). If it's after 5, 25 minutes home or about 40 minutes via daycare.

    I pretty much get DD ready in the morning (breakfast, dressed, hair and sunscreen). DH gets her socks and shoes DH drops her off as he starts 30 minutes later than me.

    Depending on our schedules depends on who picks up. If I can get away from work early, I usually pick her up.

    I am part time - Mon - Fri.

    I work part time, 5 days a week. In the morning it takes 45mins to drop both kids at my sons pre school and get to work. My daughter does before school care with her brother.

    In the afternoon it takes 1.5 hours as I have to get my son, then my daughter them drive home. But I've just offered to drop her friend home so it will now take 2 hours to get home after finishing work.

    I then have to clean, do dinner, home work, bath, bed routine, no help.

    In the morning it takes about 45 to get from home to daycare to my desk and in the afternoon probably an hour due to traffic. I do it on my own.
