i went to look at a childcare centre today for my 3yo which looked to be quite impressive, however, they are asking for a bond of $380 plus 2 weeks payment in advance.
this is suppossed to be paid within 24hrs to secure his spot.
is this quite normal? as ive never heard of paying a bond for daycare before :s
he has been to different centres in the past and ive also just finished my studies in childrens services, and i have never heard of a bond?
