Just would like to know if all daycares charge full price when they close 2 or 3 days during the holidays? This seems completly unfair since some of us do pay for child care.

I know the YMCA does if they are only closed for a few days. Now if they are closed for the whole week then they will not charge us, from my understanding.

my son's child is in a daycare in VA. he complains about paying full price when over half of the children in their have the tabs paid for by the state, welfare or something. he said some of the parents don;t even work. they do it to protect the kids while giving parents time off.I say if the parents need time off, CPS needs to step in & remove the children from the home.

I have no problem with the owners of the day care paying their employees vacation time but not hard working parents paying the day care. Then we have to pay a sitter to keep our children while they are closed. Fair?

Most quality daycares are only closed for 1 day on holidays (day of holiday) Sounds like you need to find another daycare if they are closed for 2-3 days during a holiday and are charging you for it.

Dude, I think you are missing the point. I think what some are saying is they DO pay their child care & do not like paying extra taxes for non paying mommys. As in W E L F A R E. Got it? Think we are both getting off subject though. Maybe another thread.

Yes most daycares charge by the week. If they are part of STARS (quaility rating system) they are required to have 6 paid holidays per year, and from understanding due to so many holidays falling on a Saturday this year many centers took off 2 days at Thanksgiving.

what does that have to do with parents paying full price? looks like the employees would be paid by the daycare. what days will those same daycares be closed during Christmas & New Years?

Daycares charge a weekly tuition. Tuition is charged by the week not by the day. Let me simplify this: Rent is charged by the month. If you go on Vacation and your not in your home for 2 weeks out of the month because your paying for a hotel on your vacation, do you ask your landlord for 2 free weeks?

true mama, but your house is still there if you should decide to come home. the child care is not. can't compare the two. I still say child care should be open 5 days a week.

Going on vacation is by choice. Daycare being closed is not. I'd hate to think that I paid for pizza and then they close only to say, sorry but we are closed and there are no rufunds. It should run like a lunch ticket would. If they are closed then that money could run over to the next week. Like minutes on a cell phone. You should get what you pay for. That's America. But then again, we don't always act like an American, do we?

Well last minute calls are not right and I can understand your point. My child's daycare has a handbook and it's also posted, so we know about the closings in advance.

Are you saying the handbook lists all days that the daycare is closed? Is that handbook printed Jan 1 of each year? I hear many parents are now on waiting lists for daycares that are open 5 days & week with closings on holidays only...not the day before Thanksgiving..the day before Christmas...this makes no kind of business sense.

You accrue time off for working full time hours. It's time that everyone gets as full time employee's. It's a law.. it's not something companies do because they feel like it. THEY HAVE TO. Your comment was absolutely ridiculous.

Don't get me started! I feel like daycare is a ripoff because they have you were they want you The daycare I just left made me pay for a full week but if I had a day off I couldn't bring my child even though they were open for other kids. And I had to pay two weeks paid vacation. Where my child is now we were told at the beginning of the year which six days they would be closed and I can bring him in if I have a day off so I can take care of appointments.

I would like to add to this. One way to look at it is this...if you were the one watching kids and you need a couple days off for the holiday AND you had given at least a 2 week notice to the family you watch...do you think you should get paid?? If you take a vacation day from work dont YOU get paid. Im sorry but kids are a lot of work and even though I would LOVE to bank a few dollars when my daycare is closed...I dont mind paying her because she takes care of the most important things in my life, MY KIDS...and she also deserves to have a break. Not everyone gets paid Holiday or vacation but if you value the job the provider does with your kids than fork over the $$ if not than you need to find someone else to watch your kids. Just say'n
