At what point do you mention your children?

Have an interview tomorrow and although I have not wanted to believe that mentioning the children on your CV makes a difference, I've been invited for 3 interviews in one week of taking them off after no reponses for almost 4 months! The position is part time and one of questions asked will be my preferred working hours, and I'd like to coordinate these around the school run! Do I mention the school run as my reason for the exact hours chosen or do I avoid? If the answer is avoid, do I mention the children when/if I get the job? Will that not come across as dishonest?

i went back to work after dd was born and my head boss didn't realise i had a dd till 2 months in - poor mite just never came up in conversation.

my workmates and manager knew but it wasn't 'on file' iyswim.

i see no reason for you to mention the kids at all tbh unless it comes into conversation or there is an emergency at some point.
