I definitely value my role as a mother and get a lot of satisfaction from it. But I also want to have a successful work life, I have always had a job since I was legally old enough and like being financially independent. I also want my kids to see me working outside the home and/or studying (when they are older in particular, I'm ok being home with them while they are so young).

Cue i totally understand how your feeling..you've worked hard to get where your at. It's easier to make the decision when you jave a generic job like mine. Ot was kinda hard at the start to do my job because you didn't need my 8 years of experience to do it. But it pays so well casually and if i wanted to work full time all year there's nothing to stop me. They even offer weekend overtime with penalty rates! If you end up being made redundant why . not search for casual work in a similiar role as the pay will be much better or find something else in a more senior role in a casual or short term capacity.

Well, they just called and offered me a redundancy lol. We're officially in a consultation phase and the final decision will happen later this week but it's all just formalities. The payout isn't too bad but I need to review the breakdown to make sure they have included everything I'm entitled to.

Yes look over it all. I hope this is a smooth transition for you

I'm sure Cue that whatever you decide thay it will be the best thing for you. Maybe taking the redundancy will guvw you heaps of financial freedom to decide which path u want to take career wise. Good luck with it!

I know the coordinator at my boys school doesn't have the best rep- a friends pulled her boys out citing boredom.
Having said all that- there are only 4 primary schools here locally and I think their programs are all covered. I just can't travel any further- it's too hard with my boys at school now (previously travelled 100km a day).
It's a good idea though and something to think about

I'm a coordinator at one of their centres and they have 2 coordinators at other centres who are qualified teachers, not qualified in childcare.
You could always look into a family day care centre, you only require a cert3 in childcare which isn't too difficult to obtain. Then you could work from home and decide your own hours and fees. You could run it as an after school care program as that's the age you're confident with. It's worth investigating.
The centre where the children are bored, is it run by the p&c or government based? You could always try to appeal to the parenting committee to join the team. If you make the right changes then you could quickly be moved to management.
