    Anyone got ideas? I'm starting child nursing so it's a pretty full on course. I've got 3 kids, one at school, one is 3 and the littlest is almost 1.
    At the moment I'm thinking the only way I can have anything in place is to book them in full time to nursery/after school club and try and scrape the money to cover the costs for a month until I can change their hours to suit my timetable...
    Has anyone managed to get their timetable early before freshers? That would massively help the situation!

    Yes I will, but even with the full amount that still leaves us paying over £160 a week... which would be fine if it was just one week but everywhere seems to need a months notice to change nursery hours so we're talking £650 😮

    Wow that is crazy 🙁 maybe try contacting the head of your department and see if they can give you an idea of the timetables x
