Old job/New job after maternity, that is the question

Am off on maternity leave with 8mo due to return in September. My job (which I didn't like) will now be 3 days per week 9-5.30 and DD has a place in nursey on-site. Thing is I've been offered a job elsewhere they will allow me 3 days per week 9-4 and hopefully will be able to offer me a place in the nursery. I don't know what to do. I may not like the new job either, my current boss and colleagues would probably be v.annoyed with me if I left them. Both nurseries are good. Do you think the shorter hours in nursery will be a real bonus for our little family? There is only one person I'd miss from my current job and she is supposed to be my sort of job share partner when I go back, we were pregnant together and her DS is in the nursery, she even wrote me a letter to say how pleased she was that out DCs would be in nursery together on Wednesdays and that she is really looking forward to my return. I cant ask for those hours in my current job as they have a no part-day policy.

Help!!! Dont know what to do and have to make choice tomorrow!

is it for the same company?

I doubt it would make much difference to your dd. Might mean a little less hassle getting home afterwards and time to give her tea and share an evening. Presumably she otherwise she'd eat tea at nursery. Is there a diffference in £ terms ?

The salary would be the same. I work for the NHS, different hospital but that's OK with regards to maternity pay.
