    When can they play after being in school for 6 hours?!
    My kids go to after school care and get to play in the playground at the school whilst they are there. Today they were there for almost 3 hours as I had 2 meetings after work. That is plenty of play time.

    @JR03 , it is a long day and I question my choices too. My kids however do enjoy the oosh, if you find a good place then that helps. It's not the same as being home but my dd does do a lot of fun stuff there and they get to play with their friends as well.

    I was going to send mine one arvo a week for the socialisation but coincidentally just before I tried to book them in I hear from 2 working friends who couldn't get their kids in so unless they had a last minute system I won't sign them up in case I'm taking places for those who really need it. But I actually think it's good for some kids.
    Whether you work or not fitting in homework and play (and/or after school activities) can be tricky. I'm shocked at how much ds has got this year - y1. I sent him into school with it half done and a note saying it was too much. He's a bright kid and loved kindy but already his enthusiasm for school is waning so forcing hours of homework on him isn't going to happen. Sorry I'm digressing from OP...
