I don't know why but I'm finding it so hard to decide which days of the week to work when I return in January. I'm arranging family daycare and would at least like to be able to say which days I'll be working. How did you structure your week? 4 days off in a row or broken up..and why?

I'm trying to get my daughter more days at daycare so I can return to work. Only one day a week available anywhere near me atm, no one will hire me for one day a week
But I will be trying to look for 3 days a week for daycare, preferably fri - mon - tues and hoping to get a part time job on fri - sat - sun - mon - tues. don't know if this helps you lol. I'm choosing to work on weekends as the pay rate is usually higher and will allow me to save more money.

Also, when working 3 days in a row for example, do you find that is ok for your DS/DD, they don't mind being in care three days in a row?

Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday is good.
Firstly, lots of public holidays fall on Mondays, so you'll pay for child care, but not actually use it.
Three days in a row can help ch'n adjust and settle into child care - rather than a big gap.
You have Mondays and Friday to recover/prepare for the weekend - plus catch up on errands and chores.
You'll always have a long weekend
I work three days, but because of my DD's kinder schedule, I work Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.......I'd do the three days in the middle of the week if I could.

I also work 3 days and have a lovely flexible job. I've experimented a bit and found Monday, Wed and Friday is really the best for me.
I found with working two days in a row I REALLY missed spending time with my DS, and also the laundry and grocery situation got out of control! Hahaha.
If I have 4 days off in a row I run out of chores to do at home and cooking/shopping and get a bit bored.

If they're going to CC is can be easier for them to settle in if all the days are in a row.
I do Mon, Tue, Thursday which works great for me- I do 2 days on, day with DS which is our relax at home/chores day, another day on, then fridays are generally filled with activities. So we get a little downtime in the middle of the week, plus a long weekend.
