Hi I currently work 4 days per week as a teacher at a school that is a 45 min drive from where I live. As a result I have to leave home at 7-7.30am to be in in time to set up for the day. I try to leave work between 4 and 5 to pick up my little girl from her grandparents (Idrop her off at theirs on my way to work in the morning too. She is getting near to nursery and school age and with my husband working 6am-6pm I just wondering how I'm going to get her to school in the mornings with me leaving for work at 7am? Her grandparents do not live close enough to do it and 7.30am really is the latest I can leave. I've been looking for a teaching job closer to home for 3 years nmow and there's nothing (I'm too expensive compared to the NQTs). Similarly my husband cannot find anything else and we can't afford to cut our hours. I'm looking for some ideas. What do other teachers do? Should I get a nanny to take her and collect her from school? Is this expensive? What time do breakfast clubs normally start if schools run them? I could enrole her in the school I work in but then she won't have any local friends. Any ideas very welcome thanks.
