I think you need to decide what will work best for you & your child, OP. If you would spend that 5th day doing housework, cooking, grocery shopping, etc - it depends how your child manages with being a part of those things. If they are happy to join in your chores and go grocery shopping, etc. then keep them home. If they would be happier playing at child care while you do chores, then that would be the better option.
If you were able to spend that 5th day doing special activities with your child, instead of chores, then definitely keep them home for that! But only you know if you will be able to manage to fit your other jobs in around work.

No right or wrong answer.
OP when I'm on ML for #2, I'll leave #1 in care full time. He loves it so I see no good reason to change it.
Good point about the CCR though.

@peanutmonkey and @ExcuseMyFrench....absolutely. But the OP asked what would I do.
So I thought about what I would do. My eldest starts school next year, as a working Mum, would I look back at the years before school and be happy I spent less of my limited time with him to have a day to myself, or appreciate the time I had with him? I know what I would decide and that is what I said to to the OP.
