I love this idea!

DCMom I do. In the past, I have the same number of preschoolers each day ~ 4 kids sharing two spots~ so its just different kids doing the curriculum. M-W-F, Susie does the project and T-TH Johnny does the project, kwim?

This fall, I will have an 'extra' on Tuesday/Thursday so I will order for him also and just toss the extra in my collection of craft stuff.

JaydensMommy I do purchase curriculum and do charge the parents a small fee for it, I charge my one part timer less than the full timers. I wouldn't want to exclude the part timer from the curriculum activities and crafts so it wasn't really an option not to include her.

daycare I charge $20.00 a month for full timers 4/5 days a week
I charge $15.00 a month for part timers 2/3 days a week

I create enough projects for 6 kids and split it with my part timers.... So I have 2 part timers that take up a full time spot and they split it.

Zoe Could you just buy one extra one and use it for whenever a part timer is there? It might be a different project than what the other ones are doing but at least you have something already prepared for you that way the PT's aren't left out.

MommyMuffin If you buy packaged curriculum do you pay for part time children too?


I dont want to waste money on buying more supplies for the whole month if they arent even here some days.

Their parents have never said anything about wanting a curriculum but I know it would be a bonus for them and may help me retain clients.

I am not a person who can just think up an activity for them either. I am too busy to plan anything for them on my own.

If I dont buy it what are the parents going to think when little Johnny takes home a project everyday but their child never has one to take home.
