Example: (I will only take full time, so no daily rates have been enforced) Full time pays $125 on Friday for the following week of care. They tell me one week in advance that they will be leaving town for the weekend and will only attend Monday-Thursday, not friday. So, it's time to pay for the four day week. Do they just pay $100 and if they decide to come on Friday they need to pay before drop-off instead of pick-up?
Well, my policy if they give me at least two weeks notice if they are planning to go on vacation for one week so I give them unpaid vacation. If they give me short notice or without notice and I will charge them 1/2 rates. If they decided to take a couple days off but they still have to pay because I dont give them free days.

I would charge them on Friday. Making sure they pay you on Thursday evening before they go out of town.
