I had another enquiry on Friday. It’s a child age 3 just on Thursdays and

Fridays I have got a place. But the problem is school holidays again I have

space, I have a daughter who is 8. I have 2 children mon, tue and wed in

holidays and if I take this child on I will be working all week, I also have a

child every other Saturday so I won’t have much time for my daughter. I

just can’t make up my mind, I know the money would be nice but I do have a

life as well. The mum says she can’t find another CM in area who serves our

school. i just need some advice

Thanks in advance Ellen x

Can you not change the hours for the holidays? worth mentioning it in case mum is flexible.

No as she has just started her own bussiness, her mum was looking after him

but its got too much for her and her sister was her back up but know can't

do it so this mum is stuck.

i think its worth asking if she can change one day for the hols to allow you to have a day with your daughter or write down specific dates that you just so happen to have booked already and cant work.

I would take the contract for thurs/fri term time and change it to mon/tue holidays, then you will have a couple of days free in the hols. Personally Iwork 51 weeks of the year 5 days a week anyway, so wouldnt notice lol:)
