SAB, considering all the issues you have with your neighbours children coming into your yard and the fact you are about to start family day care I think it's time you stood up for yourself and speak to the parents and make them realise they can not treat your yard as their own! If that doesn't work call the police for trespassing!
This could effect your business, personally I wouldn't leave DD somewhere I knew other kids where coming and going as I'd be concerned about what they may bring over, whether it be illness or something worse, there's also the issue of how secure the premises are if these children can simply come and go.
Just a thought.

I don't think the child is sick.
Some parents do not send their kids to school. I've got a child in my class who was away 33/100 days last semester, and hasn't returned yet this term, and we are at the end of week 2. I also have another child who was absent 77/100 days last semester. I have several other students who are absent more than the average. Attendance should be around 92%. Some parents just can't be bothered, maybe she just isn't sick and the mum can't be bothered fighting with her to go to school.

my only suggestion....get a better gate/fence.
You don't like this kid coming over as she pleases...so, put a true physical barrier in the way.
It does sound frustrating, but i do agree the "why she is off school" is not really your business. What is your business, is that this child is in your yard without invite/welcome/permission.

Yes but we dont know either way so is it fair to assume she is lying ??
My daughter only attended about 2 months of kindy. then about 6 months of pre primary, and the 6 months she was there she had lots of days of, So far year one has been good she has one day of a week each week as a rest day ( instagaged by drs and ED dept agree) and she has days of for what i explained above, but too someone not knowing the situation only being told she is of school but looks fine you would likely form the same opinion that im to lazy to take her to school

I don't have any children in my class who have severe disabilities or any other disorders. Some parents are slack. I'm sure the teachers would understand your circumstances. I don't think anybody would be reporting you to the HSLO.
OP, *if* child is sick, then I would be telling the mother that she can't come and play in your yard.

yes i realise that but my point is to a neighbour that does not know our circumstances they could see her at home and jump to the same conclusion then go post on a forum and people jump to the same conclusion.
We dont know this kids sittuation yes she may not be sick the mum may be to lazy to take her but she also may be a child with any number of reasons to be off school, fact is we dont know other peoples circumstances and sick kids are not all that rare.
