As for addressing the family's loss, I would absolutely do so in whatever way feels right for you.
I also agree with this.

While I would feel bad for the family, my emotions have nothing to do with running a business. Also, I feel like doing this once will set the expectations for any future situations. If you're policy is they pay regardless of attendance, then they should pay.

Do you think her electric company will give her a free week because her father passed away? I don't know why daycare should be any different.

However, I would probably get flowers and a card or something for her to show my sympathy.
