I think I understand more or less how kindy/school systems works. My daughter will be 5 in Feb 09, so I think she will start school in April 09. Here in UK we've had a childminder, who dropped her off to nursery, picked her up, fed, entertained etc, while both of us did our full-time jobs. I expect (and hope) that we will have FT jobs in Adelaide, and wonder if childminders exist, work the same, are affordable, are flexible or how else could we go about mornings and afternoons and before she goes to school around the half-day sessions in kindy.
Oh, if only I could take my childminder with me.
