I worked in as a software developer, for few years and then had to take a long gap of 4 yrs when I was blessed with a son.He is now 3.5 yrs old now has started going to Mini KG.
Now since he has become old enough adjust himself to new surroundings I have decided to put him in a good daycare and start working fulltime again.
I am sure there must be many mothers who are able to manage office and family perfectly :)
Will you all share your experiences with me about this.. .. what all support systems did you have to successfully start a new venture..
waiting for your replies :)
I had exactly same situation......i joined back to work when my kiddo was around 3-3.5. Preparation started long back...i made kiddo stay without me for one night with my mom.
If you tell kids properly, they understand.
I had lot of time in hand...sos earched for good day-care around....made kiddo comfortable with the environment.....kids out there.....Initally we both used to sit there play...eat...for 2 hours....slowly i he got used to it and started playing happily with other kids.
Job hunt is another trouble which mother has to face....beacuse you are on break for few years.....
I joined part time in the begining....mother inside me was crying everyday...to leave my kid behind in day care....first 6 months were terrible.
Wish you all the best....for your new start

Hey Hi ,
I will let you know when i come to know a good day care.
I planned to search for a part time work when my kid was 2 yr old, till now i am doing some part time projects, I learned a lot of tings but its good to do a full time job than a part time :)
So now i have decided to work from 9 to 5 .
Search job (if you are still interested in software industry) which is nearby your house, so that travelling time is saved.
Now a days there are many day cares which take various activities from kids, search for such daycares. Kids get social , they learn to adjust with others thats a good habit..
Its important to spend quality time with your kid.. No of hrs you spend is not important , how you spend is!
bye for now.
No idea @ magarpatta area...you need to search nearby.
My kiddo is no more in day care now.
He was there for hardly 2-3 months......in-laws came down to take care of him......I was soooo happy that someone is there to take look after him....
Though the day care was good, kiddo was falling sick freq.
Now, he is in careful hands and so i can work peacefully :)
I also n working women (Cybercity) and having 4.5 yrs daughter....My daughter stays at Serra International,magarpatta ...I found it very good and especially my daughter is very happy over there and well cultered ...
Serra has Preschool as well as Daycare...that too very good
