From stay at home mom to part time work - what about school breaks?
Looking to start part-time job while daughter is in school durning the daytime. I have been at home mom 4 years now and have NEVER used babysitter or daycare & would like to keep it that way. WHAT DO I DO ABOUT SUMMER BREAKS, SPRING BREAKS & OTHER VARIOUS BREAKS W/OUT QUITING the job every summer and starting a new one? I dont see how this is going to work! #1) What *part-time* job (NOT CAREER) would allow you to simply not work durning most of your childs school vacations & breaks? Im thinking NONE! except teaching....and well that is a career. Im only looking into casual part-time jobs for extra cash and definatly want it to be OUTSIDE the home for socialization issues I desperately need. #2) If i crack and decide to do the daycare thing (I simply refuse to put her in personal nanny/sitter care due to security issues i have) but could consider a large daycare building/setting....Will they even be OPEN durning a holiday break and school breaks? Or is most large centers closed for those of you with jobs at the schools...what is your position? How shall I apply? My daughter is not in the public school system...she is in private religious based school which does follow the public school system shedule somewhat for days off. I know her school has nothing open for work. :(

What about working at a school as a receptionist or teacher assistant? That would be a great job to have to be off summers.

Working w/in the school district is a good idea, but in my area, those jobs are hard to come buy. I too am a part time worker, my daughter is in 1st grade, and I work retail. My manager when she hired me knew my availability, and agreed to it, and so far, it has not been a problem.
