How stressful. Without knowing all the details I think they're being a little unfair to you. Will they discount the cost of the day if he can't be there past 2pm?
I'm sure you've considered this, but are there other care options for you? FDC or a nanny, even if the care is shared between the centre and the nanny (ie they could pick up your DS and look after him for a couple of hours in the afternoon). It's tough when money is an issue, hopefully your DHs business is successful and you can scale back your work hours if that's what you want to do.
Big hugs to your DS, it must be difficult for him too.

If he was still biting and hitting then I would say they have grounds to say that but if he's not doing that any more I don't see why/how they can. The only thing I can think of is if he's being really disruptive or the only reason they have the hitting and biting under control is because they have someone there with him the whole time which would mean they have to put on an extra staff member or the other kids that need attention are missing out. I'd be having a meeting with them and asking them why they feel he can't be there when the support person isn't.

I would presume they have to give more notice than 3 days (not incl weekend)??
They are within their rights to cut his hours/days, but have to give you notice.
I believe it differs from state to state, but would presume 2 weeks is a minimum?
