When you pick the kids up from school do you go straight home?
We have been staying at the playground at school for up to an hour after school. The kids play with their friends and I talk with the other mums and breastfeed the baby.
Some families seem to head straight home.
What do you do?

Head straight home. Unless we have organised afternoon tea out somewhere with the kids friends.

In summer we head to the park one or two nights a week with a few other families. its a non structured thing, you go if you can and see who else is there. Its panned out that most mum's take a small plate of food and we just share whatever we have, so we end up with fruit, cake, dry biscuits, or if its really warm, a box of icy poles.
In winter however, which goes on and on and on for months here, we head straight home.

Head straight home asap, can't stand hanging around. There's no playground at our school anyways.

We head straight home as the OOSH kids head up to play in the school playground after school.
Plus they lock the gates 20min after the school bell

At my son's kindy always stay for a play. It's encouraged. There are always heaps of kids playing. At the girls school now they're getting older we tend not to stay too long. They're tired and have usually lots of homework.

We go across the road to the park where there is a playground. Most parents do and no one stays in the school grounds for long.

in summer we often stay for a bit of a play.
I love staying at the park, its much easier than a play date and she gets to play with other kids that she might not normally play with.
in winter we tend to go straight home.

Most days my dp picks the kids up on his way home. If it's a nice day he takes them to the park. If it's raining they come straight home. On the days they go to the park they are home by 5. Thursdays and Fridays they go to the local church kids club 4:30 to 7.
