    Yep pay for public holidays and no make up days (it's a full centre so no spots). They still need to pay for staff on public holidays which is the main reason for it.

    We pay for ds if he is sick.....I do find it slightly annoying especially because I'm doing the right thing by not letting him go and other parents still send their kids sick....and they are the reason my kid is sick.

    Whilst I understand their reasoning im still allowed to vent aren't I? At my eldest daughters daycare they used to charge half price for sick days and half price for holidays. This daycare, which is great don't get me wrong, has the same policy as all other daycares, which as I said I do understand but makes things tough if you have to be off work because the child is unable to go to daycare, and in some cases you don't get paid but still have to pay $85 a day.

    Unfortunately it's standard.

    At one centre we've been to if you book in holidays longer than a week, with a certain amount of notice, it was like 50% off because that helped them maybe fill some of those days or give staff time off etc.

    It's crappy though.

    Well they still have to pay their staff. You still get rebate and benefit if you qualify.

    As I said I understand but its still ****, luckily I am not casual anymore but if I was it would be a lot of money to pay when you don't actually get paid. For childcare I think there should be a certain amount of days allocated for sick days, the amount we pay in fees they could surely sort something out. Kids always get sick, especially in their first 6 months! Can kind of see why people send their sick children into daycare

    Its a pain (I have two children who attended daycare) but, I see the centres point. They have had to cater for your children being there - staff, consumables, food etc. Their costs are not reduced by you not attending at short notice. What would they do when half the room is out with something like hand foot and mouth? They have to assume all the children that are booked are coming. If they didnt charge for that then they would run at a loss for the day. That could have a knock on effect with the quality of care provided as they cut costs........
