    Yes I got one of these also that they are waiving the payment

    When do these changes come into effect? Is it this year or next? (Probably a dumb question..)

    They have to pass through Parliament - if it does I suspect the start date is July 2015

    Yea our surgery sent us one of those msgs - they have an ultrasound, X-ray and pathology as well so I assume those will also have waived the fee

    I wouldn't say my hours as a teacher are 7:30-5. But there are a lot of hours I do at home.

    When I was working full time we were leaving by 7am (at the latest) for daycare drop off at 7.30, pickup at 5.30 and home for 6pm, later it we needed to do shopping. It's really common where I work?

    I do 7:30 to 5 most days, longer if I have someone to pick DD up. Common where I work too.

    Yes and by the time you factor in travel time to and from work it could easily lead to a very long day.

    If there is a special needs clause, I haven't heard of it. There has been no mention. And as you know, my DS2 majorly struggles with school as it is. I can't imagine how he would cope at before and after school as well.

    - the exception being cases where the kids are special needs and won't cope with the extra after school care. I would hope that extra support is offered to thise families but rather under the disabilities umbrella.

    Or is there something I am missing?
