Hi, Please help me here, I am a single mother to a 2year old, and I really want to train as a hairdresser.... problem being that even if I do part time hours the likelyhood is I'll have to work saturdays as its a salon's busiest day. Every vacancy I've seen includes saturdays. I have no family to have my son, his father is as useless as he is unreliable, what are the options? I'd be applying for working tax credits, so will there be problems if I use two sources of childcare etc/??? Help- I'm baffed, dont even know where to start, why aren't nurseries open on Saturdays anyway????!!!! Thanks, Gina (enfield, london)
My childminder would do Saturdays that's rare though, but there's no harm in ringing local cms and seeing if any of those
there would be no problem using two different childcare providers as long as you told the tax credit people
or you could contact local colleges and seeing if any of the childcare students wanted some experience, money and a reference which is important to get a childcare job. They wouldn't be ofsted registered so you would have to pay for it yourself, but they would have a crb.
