    My old centre would charge full fees for days taken off sick but for holidays we offered half days if the parents let us know in advance.

    Yep we've always had to pay, DS spent two weeks in hospital and we were still required to pay full fees during that time.

    We've always had to pay for sick days too, I assumed that was the norm.

    This is totally normal and from a business perspective makes perfect sense. Otherwise their revenue would ebb and flow according to the health of the kids. Which wouldn't work.

    We also have to pay for public holidays and there are no reduced fees for holidays. The holiday thing would be nice as it makes going away very expensive!

    From what I understand about childcare this is totally normal. I run a dance school and fees still have to be paid for lessons missed. The business would not be viable otherwise.

    You're basically still paying for your spot that day even though your DD was'nt there.



    Me 29 + DH 33 = DD 7 months

    We pay normal rates even if they aren't attending that day. We get a half price holiday discount if we give 3 weeks notice.

    This is the same at our centre. You will still get ccr for a certain number of absences a year and then our centre offers 20 half price holiday days but you need to book in advance so they can adjust rosters.

    This is normal. We pay full fees for absences, with ccr and ccb deducted unless it goes over the maximum amount of absences allowed by centre link in one year. They still have to the same running costs regardless if a child is off sick or not. Annoying but fair I guess.
