My colleagues and I have been told our working hours will likely change. We will move from set hours/days to a shift pattern. My DH and I currently have set days for childcare and set hours. The new arrangement would require working until late in the evening rather than finishing at 4.30/5 Just wondered if anyone had any thoughts.... We do not have anyone else to rely upon for childcare, nursery only and my DH works also.
As a childminder I have families on shifts they need 3 days some weeks 4 others so pay for 4 days I loose a days pay they sometimes loose a day. I have another who I can fit In with another child as they are flexible on days so just pay for what is needed that week.
