Default Do You Collect 1st And Last Week At Registration?

I have a new baby starting soon and mom dropped off completed paper work and deposit. My deposit is one weeks pay, credited to their last week as long as they give 2 weeks notice and all that jazz. I also require payment on Fridays for the following week. Usually with new kids they either bring the check the friday before they start or I am ok with them bringing it their first day. Well, this new client isn't starting till mid-Sept. but already gave me the check for the deposit and also gave me the 1st week's pay as well. I was just thinking this is a good idea and I should probably do this with everyone. I don't collect 2 weeks as a deposit because I feel like its a lot to shell out at once. Does anyone do it this way?

that is how I've done it for the past 10 years and its been fine. You pay Friday for the following week - if your payment isn't in by Monday morning (w/late fee) your child doesn't come in either. no exceptions.
But I'm just thinking that collecting first week is a good idea too - since it means they don't need to come by again to drop that check off before they start.
