Could Access to Work help to cover childcare costs?

Hi! I've recently discovered 'Access to Work' after being partially sighted for the past 9 years. I'm unable to drive to this, I am a single mum of 2 children and my ex is not in the picture due to DV.

 I may have a job offer for a position that's 9 minutes drive by car or 26 minutes by bus. The issue is that the bus timings might make it difficult for me to get to and from work in time to drop off and collect them from school/nursery.

Whilst the school does a before/after school club, the nursery currently does not. Does anyone know if the scheme would allow for this adjustment?

 I've looked into childminders for my youngest but they all collect from the much larger primary school just down the road, not from the school my boys attend! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
