Have you considered becoming a niche agency targeted directly at family holidays. That way, you could set up a small play area in your shop/office for when clients come in with their kids. It would also enable you to have your own daughter with you at least a few days a week. Since you would be dealing mainly with parents anyway they would probably understand you having your daughter at work with you (and being interupted occassionaly).
Another idea, is it feasible to hire someone else for a few days a week so that you don't have to work every day.
Or, promote yourself as an agency that works later hours so that you can serve clients after hours when they finish work. e.g. open from 2pm to 7pm so that your partner share the responsibility of looking after your daughter when he gets home from work.
