Change preschool based on potential but as-yet nonexistent new job?
I'm graduating from my MSW (master of social welfare) program in May, and will be looking for jobs starting sometime soon thereafter. I LOVE the preschool my younger son (age 4 as of January 2017) is in now (Casa Cerrito in El Cerrito) - however, their hours are 9am - 5pm, with no extended care options.
I'm guessing most MSW jobs will want me to be on-site from 9am-5pm, but seeing as I don't yet have a job, and don't know where it'll be in relation to where we live, it seems silly to move him out of a school he and I love, and they love him. However, I'm also remembering that most preschools do registration in February, and often have wait lists, sooo......I'm not sure what to do.
Casa Cerrito is also cheaper by about $400-600/month than the longer, local preschools I've looked up.
So I guess I have two questions:
1 - Should I bite the bullet and just sign up for a longer day preschool that will give me the option to work longer hours?
2 - Are there real jobs out there that offer some hours flexibility and that might be open to me working 7-hour days to facilitate dropoff and pickup?
