am just wondering how those of us with young children juggle supply with chid care. i have a 21mths old daughter who goes to childminder 2 days a week(contracted). this was agreed in my previous job (non teaching)which ended last year. when i started supply i decided to retain the 2days, if am lucky am called for work, but if unlucky i go to work for hubby who is self employed. My childminder has now agreed to have her on morning bookings for the rest of the days which i thought was great as i could be dropping her as n when am called for work. However, my agency normally calls me anyting after 8, never been earlier, during this time my CM is doing school runs. the next time i can get hold of her is 9ish which will be too late. With work being so little, even been called for work is a miracle in itself so as much as i would like to think that i could ask agency to give me work earlier or on the day before, i know this may never happen.i cant afford to book my CM for a week as it will be too expensive. hence my question, how are we coping with supply with young children to look after. i.e if am not the only one trying supply with a young child.
