You need to look at the flexible working regulations flexi
Make sure you specify the positives the request will have for your employer - they will not be interested in your childcare issues!

Make sure you explain how you can see it working, and also that you can be flexible (hopefully you can, even a little can be seen to be great)
I do 3 days, it's great, but about once a month or so I have to travel and work on a different day - I'm happy to do that, and they seem to appreciate it.
Good luck!
