Dcm said they're trying to figure out what to do with dck when he starts school. Why would they want to know this? I can only assume that if they thought dck wouldn't count in my ratio, then they wouldn't have to pay for a spot??

I'm thinking I may just make it super easy, and not take SA at all. Depending on the child, I may occasionally take them as a drop-in, but I'll cross that bridge when I get there.
For a long time, here, they did not count after age 13. Apparently so many people did keep extra tweens they raised it to age 18. It stinks for those with their own kids at home. My own did not count after 13, and that felt like an eternity. Three slots is a lot to give up for 18 years.

The crazy part is that they can be assistants in centers at 16, but not in home childcare. They are kids until 18. Hmmm?
