    Hello @AlvarezGenesis_88 and welcome. When your child is at school, it is
    likely that you will receive help with transport from your local authority –
    you will need to contact them to discuss this. I don’t know that this would
    apply to a nursery but, again, as provision varies this is something you’ll
    need to ask them. You should also remember that you have a statutory
    requirement to request flexible working from your employer if you’ve worked for
    them continuously for at least 26 weeks. This may help you work hours that can better
    enable you to meet your son’s needs.
    is some information
    on the transport side of things. Good luck.

    I meant to say you have a statutory entitlement to request flexible working. Sorry :)
