    That's normal, it's why I try and avoid using Mondays.

    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

    If you saw the tiny tiny margins child cares generally run on, you would see that would be impossible for most to implement. What would likely have to happen is fees would increase for everyone, which sort of defeats the purpose.

    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.

    Yours is council run, isn't it? So the carers there are being paid by the council, not solely through fees.
