before school childcare

Hi all
I've got two daughters (14 months and 4) who are in childcare while I work. My current job is flexible so I can do drop-offs and pick ups etc. It can be a bit rushed, but no different to any other working mum. I am usually the one to take my older daughter to pre-school so that's nice.

I'm being interviewed for another job soon and, although I may not get it, if I did, the current arrangements wouldn't work. I want to have someone come to the house between 7 and 9 am to give the girls their breakfast and drop them off at nursery and school.

Do you think I'd get someone to do this? Is this a really unusual part-time role?

Common thing to need, you'd probably need to offer a higher hourly rate to reflect the fact that it's only two hours. If you could extend it to four hours with some cleaning/ironing might get more applicants. Try

I don't think you will find someone. Can your DH help out?

What about a childminder?

2 hours is not that attractive to many people but it might suit someone.

What about school holidays, inset days, snow days?

Maybe a nanny with own child would be interested especially someone who has a child at your children nursery or school or works after school for someone else.

What about a student?

I'm in the same situation, looking for help with early morning ( 7ish to 8ish) pre-school drop-offs for my 2 kids (2&3.5 yrs) starting from next September 2015. As they're pre-school age I don't think childminders would be interested. Any ideas? Very stressed about it!

Janeyaney79, did you find a solution?

I do something like this now and then
how it works for me and the others that do the same thing.
For me it fits in as i do bits and bobs But i don't have to do the school run child gets the bus.
The others have a day job that they can get to after school bus has come.

If you can't find anyone like me or the other who just need abit of money. Now and then.
you to need get them cleaning / batch cooking. .

Shopping. House hold tasks.
it really depends where you and what kind area you live in.
because they would have to be local to you
as travel cost are so expensive.
