Childcare email proposal to work from home

Subject: Request for Permanent Remote Work

Hi [Boss’s first name],

I hope this finds you well. 

After assessing my current work and personal circumstances, I’ve concluded that working from home permanently would greatly benefit my ability to balance work commitments with childcare responsibilities.

I’m eager to discuss how this can be aligned with our team’s goals and workflow. I’d like to propose a meeting where we can go over the details and I can present a structured plan.

Here are some time slots I’m available for a meeting:

  • [Day]: [Time slot]
  • [Day]: [Time slot]
  • [Day]: [Time slot]

Looking forward to our conversation.


[Your name]
