I'm returning to work in a few months time, jobshare. I will work Mon, Tue one week and Mon Tue Wed the following week. My hubby does 2 dayshifts and 2 nightshifts which move on a day each week, so there will be weeks when I don't need childcare. Just wondering, is anyone else in a similar situation, and have you been able to find childcare that accomodates this, or are you having to pay for days your little one doesn't need childcare ?

this is what i was going to be doin until i found a new job however i have two friends who do something very similar to you and both of them use a normal nursery.ones husband is a policeman and her days alternate from wk to wk.sometimes her parents/sister has lil one and other days he goes into nursery which they seem to be ok with and she certainly doesnt pay any extra for days she doesnt need him to go in!my other friends is single parent and she used to have to give them just 24 hrs notice if she needed to add/take off days.to be sure she would need to give a wk for a definate place because they can only take so many kiddies.try and phone around local nurserys as one of my friends introduced her little one in slowly taking him a day a wk then started leaving him there a couple of dasys which helped them both become acustomed to it.they were both happy and settled and she was able to concentrate at work without worrying too much from shock!hope it goes well for you xx
