Office experience? Not a fat lot actually. I did three and a half years as an admin assistant in local government, but that was 20 years ago, before I went off to uni! I apply for loads of office jobs and sent my CV to all the big agencies...I think my experience was too long ago for them to take any notice of it. All I get back from them is a standard rejection e-mail.
Availability and standard of childcare facilities is great, yes, depending on where you live. I still wonder, for people with a couple of small children, and who may be still on temporary visas, if the cost of full-time childcare wouldn't take up most of the wages earned...it could end up leaving you no better off financially to put your kids in a childcare centre.
