I would look for child care facilities and test them out. When the job comes along then you proceed. I was in a similiar situation with my first, I registered for child care but then ended up canceling cuz the job fell thru. It is easier to cancel child care than to say I can't start until I find child care. Some people might not hold the job for you.

it is always usefull to see what childcare facilities there are the price and the hours they would be able to have them and the waiting list times they have. then once you have a basic knowledge of that you roughly know what hours you can do when going for a job. you dont really want to be paying for child care when you havent got a job an extra expense

Look at working from home and being able to take your child with you, it helps give them confidence and they still have you
