Schools only usually. I haven't come across any jobs advertised with term time only. Sorry but you will have to do what thousands of working women do around the world and use daycare.

Hi you can get jobs in the local supermarkest etc to work term time as the juniors want the work in the hols, normally they take you on as a casual so you get no holiday or sick pay and hours aren't guaranteed although having said that you do tend to get regular shifts. As for childcare, if you are eligible you can claim a percentage back from the government. This is called the childcare rebate which you sort out through Centrelink. I get 50% of my costs back, this is deposited back into my account every 3 months. Thanks Bee

i realise your kids are to young at the moment but when they are at primary school you can put them in save the children holiday care programs its income tested and they do lots of fun things with the kids also most shires do sports programs for the whole day or half days , i used to use all these facilities with my kids when i needed them . it maybe while the hoidays are on it takes a fair whack of your wages but this is offset when they are at school and you can work and not have to pay for these things
