Working and balancing family and career

Always late for work because of the school drop off?

There are a few things you can try to alleviate this issue:

Wake up earlier: Giving yourself extra time in the morning can help ensure you’re not rushing to get out the door.

Plan ahead: Make sure you have everything you need for the day packed and ready to go the night before.

Streamline the drop off process: If possible, consider carpooling with other parents or using a school bus to drop off your child.

Communicate with your employer: Let them know your situation and see if there’s any flexibility in your start time.

Consider hiring a nanny or a babysitter to help you with the school drop off.

Check if the school provides any before or after school care program that could help.

You could also consider looking for a school closer to your workplace.

Ultimately, the best solution will depend on your specific circumstances and resources, but trying one or more of these strategies may help you arrive at work on time despite the school drop off.
