If you have another adult home with you, consider a split schedule: At the beginning of each day, decide who will be the 'on point' parent. That person will work at the dining room table, feed the kids and suggest activities, while the other parent works in a different room.
One parent can also work before the children are awake, then you can stagger work times during the day, and the other parent can work when the children are in bed.
Before you make adjustments to your work schedule in order to watch your children, talk to your boss or HR.
Let them know that your transition to home also means being responsible for your children. Create a schedule that you can share with your boss and assure them of your commitment to maintaining the level of excellence they expect.
If you clearly communicate your needs, you will decrease the level of stress and also open the door for coworkers to follow suit.
