Daycare Center and Family Home Forum>...But That Is WHY I Want Her In Daycare!!!!

I got an unusual request (at least to me) this morning. A woman calls asking about available slots. I explain that I won't have any for a minimum of 3.5 years, barring anything unforeseen, and offer to place her on my waiting list. I then politely thank her for her interest and wish her a Happy New Year.

As I am about to hang up she asks if she can pay cash "under the table" since she only needs care for 5 months. She then explains she needs that time so I can potty train her daughter before school starts in the fall.

I explained to her that even if I did have a slot that is not something I could do. I explained it is illegal for me to take her out of ratio and could cost me everything I have worked for. I also told her that potty training was a parental responsibility and I only assist here.

Her response was "but that is WHY I want her in daycare to begin with." and then hung up. Anyone else getting calls like these? Too weird for words!!!

Dh thinks someone in our area must be doing "cash under the table" and Licensing is calling around....

Maybe I got "punked"? Where's Ashton????
