The current centre I use full price sick days. Half price holidays and no charge for public holidays
We get charged full fee for a public holiday - when the centre is CLOSED and I cant take them there even if I want too -
It's always been this way when DD didn't attend.
It makes sense too. They still have their costs to cover and its not like they could let another child take that place on those random days people take off.
Would you also be upset/angry if you were to drop off/pick up your children and their wasn't enough staff for supervision? we have parents who don't inform us their child is sick and not coming, we have even had parents drop off their child and they are not even booked in. We need to legally have a certain amount of staff. Also, staff are not very appreciative if they get rostered and rung to be told not to come in. There loads of elements to take into consideration.
As I said I do understand why they do it, but I also think there should be a certain amount of days that are able to be used as "sick days", especially in the field of childcare
I pay for DDs 2 days no matter what. I'm lucky that our centre offers make up days if your day falls on a public holiday, which is nice. We recently went on holiday and I still paid for those days even though I had given plenty of notice. It's the way it is. It's a great centre so I'm happy to pay for her spot to be kept.
Yep... It's normal.
