Default Daycare Fees

is it right for a daycare to post a childs name and amount owed if a week behind for all the other parents to see on the sign in sheet.

Not illegal at all.
Not professional either but certainly motivating for the family to pay.

Even though you had already made arrangements that she accepted?

Like I said, not cool at all but she's not really breaking any laws.

Personally, I'd question her character if she did this to embarrass you AFTER you already talked to her about it.

That is the part I'd have a hard time getting over as a parent.

I would also think the other parents don't necessarily view her posting unpaid accounts openly as a negative thing towards you but more as a negative about her as a provider...kwim?


Have you tried to discuss this "posting" with her?
I'm sorry she did this to you.

idk, not something I would do. I find it unprofessional.

Did she agree to the change in payment? How did she post it? Just next to your sign in sheet?

My feelings too. Not something I would do at all and would definitely voice my displeasure if it'd been done to me under those circumstances. She already agreed to letting you pay that way yet posted it for all to see?

Is it possible she expected you to pay two weeks, in advance, then every two weeks?

I find it hard to believe a provider would be willing to front two weeks of care due to a job change.

The posting is "unprofessional" according to the updated *private childcare training classes, but effective according to long term business practices in earning an income.

What is deemed professional seems to change from generation to generation.

The literal definitions are awesome if you have some free time. Some examples:

"undertaken or engaged in as a means of livelihood or for gain: "

"a person who earns a living in a sport or other occupation frequently engaged in by amateurs:"

I don't know if I would post an amount, but on my sign-in sheet there is a line for "Fee". I actually was just using it as a reminder for myself, but I think that it might be a reminder (and motivator) for the parents too.

The only thing I can think of is that it was a reminder for herself and she forgot to take it off the sign in sheet?

I agree I handle all late payments and things of that nature pretty privately. I don't have a sign-in and sign-out sheet that the parents have to do but I have my own and I will write reminders next to it or leave certain paperwork out. If a parent happens to see it it's not my intention as a provider to "embarrass" them it's just so I don't forget!

Pickups & drop-offs can get pretty crazy and I forget to mention things all the time! The visual really helps me!

Nope! Not enough of a need for it in my area for me to do it. I've only had one person ask about it for an inquiry.

Also literally no idea how to accept assistance if I ever had to????
