It is the same principle. Got a problem? Start your own day care and see what we are talking about, then maybe you would understand better. If we catered to everyones whims, we would watch your precious for free 24/7. "

My, you sound like a provider who really doesn't like parents or children... Maybe time to find a new profession? I am a healthcare professional and think it is completely fair to provide my childcare provider for the same paid holidays that most other professionals receive.. These would be Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc.. But, we had one who wanted paid time off for every school vacation day, including the 2 weeks off at Christmas paid! This is an extreme hardship on parents who must pay "double" and find someone else to cover those days. Many of these parents aren't lucky enough to be getting ANY paid holidays of their own... Of the ones who are, only parents who happen to be school teachers are getting as many paid holidays as this childcare provider. (We found someone new). If this woman wants so many paid holidays she should go back to college and get a teaching degree.
I beg to differ with you. The provider above in no way sounds like an unhappy employee (semantics?). She simply has several bosses (sort of speak) who feel their money is more important than her time - time she spends with their most precious. You are speaking of your provider you chose. Unless she changed her policies along the way and you agreed- simply find a less greedy and more reasonable provider. You say, "If this woman wants so many paid holidays she should go back to college and get a teaching degree." and I have to believe you are again speaking of your greedy provider and not the lady above!
