Will I be able to gain employment easily again?

A little worried.
I worked full time in education and teaching all my life until I had my dc later in life (40) due to infertility.
After maternity I decided not to return to teaching for DD’s early years.
She’s now 4 and starting school, I have the option to complete a masters, which will take two years, I’d then like to return to the workplace (possibly not teaching, but something in the education/childcare sector)
I’ll be 46 with six years taken out of employment…I will have gained my masters during this time (hopefully!)
Will potential employers look down their nose at me?
During this time, I’ve kept my hand in occasionally with temporary tutoring jobs and childcare around my Dd…I can include this in my cv, but it’s not much, is it 🤷🏻‍♀️
Do potential employers look negatively at time taken out to stay at home and bring up young children..I’m hoping not

Yes you will be able to rejoin the workplace quite easily. You are (understandably) over thinking things.
