Can you use the nursery you are happy with and a before and after school club? Alternatively try another childminder nearer to you/school.

Why not just a childminder? Then you get the at home experience - ok, its at someone else's house, but the more time she spends there it will feel more comfortable?

Then the baby can be there all day and you only have 1 pick-up and drop off to do. If you find one who goes to DD's school you could even do DC2 handover there.

I will be in the same position soon too! School age ds, starts in September. Baby due in December.

If I can get some freelance work I would be looking to go full time, 6 months to a year depending on how I'm feeling.

The best bet for me I think if I do go back is to find a nanny share to look after the babies and who can do the pick up. Cos if I do work I definitely want to try and let ds be at home and not in after school club every day.

So how about the nanny share part be the your baby and one other, and then your dd join after school?
