Yes all of my siblings and I were all in child care/ before and after school care. Mum never had any extended time off and her and dad worked incredibly hard to make ends meet. I hate to think about the cost of it all for 6 of us kids! I used to be so jealous of my friends whose mums would pick them up from school and have afternoon tea ready for them. But obviously every family is different and that's just how it worked for us!
