I have a three year old and I’m in pastry school. Soon I will be looking to stage and intern somewhere. I’m not a single mother but I might as well be because my husband’s schedule is unpredictable and I can’t rely on him for childcare. I also don’t have family right now that can help out so my only option is extended care at my daughters school. I want to minimize the time she spends there. The best I can do is work 9:00-5:00 or 7:30-3:30. But I also want to get the best experience possible and work my way up to a position with a good income. I am considering hiring a nanny but I don’t really know what the best options are. I would like to work at a reputable restaurant but at this moment it doesn’t seem like a possibility. Maybe I can start at a bakery and transition to a restaurant when I have more flexibility?
