Default July 5th

Are you open or closed?


I closed this year b/c I figured kids would be out late with parents and I did not want to deal with that the next morning.

1 family complained, "gee I wish I had your schedule." Try it for a week sister, I doubt it.

Open. I don't even close when a "little" holiday like that is on a weekend. My families mostly work retail and me taking off the little holidays is a bit of an annoyance for them as they don't get the days off.

Besides, with the holiday on a Monday, most of the celebrations are likely to be on Saturday or Sunday night, so it's not necessarily true that all the kiddos will be out late.

Whatever week the 4th of July falls in is my week off in the summer. We spend the whole week on the lake and I don't think of daycare for one single second!!

Any holiday that lands on a Saturday is taken the Friday before. Any holiday that lands on a Sunday is taken Monday.

That's usually how business do it so I do it the same.

I will be open July the 5th.

I am already closed Monday the 4th and could not justify closing Tuesday, too.

The actual Holiday is paid, but the following day would not be.

The 3 day weekend is just enough for family fun without losing income.

Same here! It conserves precious vacation days, too.

I'm closed, paid holiday. I have Christmas and 4th of July stated that if it falls on Sunday-Thurs. I'm off the next day as well. I figure we will be out late with Fireworks and so will they.

I will not be open this year, but normally I am open. I do not personally think that not wanting to deal with cranky kids is a good reason to close. If that were the case I wouldn't open any day! Or have my own kids.

I normally would be open on the 5th, but not this year. I'm now taking that whole week off for my vacation.

Open! I bet fireworks will be over the weekend anyways, at least if I remember correctly that's normally how they do it when the day falls on a week day.

I have it off as one of my paid holidays. None of my parents have ever said anything about it--maybe because my rates are so (too, I have come to realize) low. But that's a discussion for another thread.

Me too. Normally I am open because I take vacation other times in the year. This year it happens to be the week (or one of the weeks) we are vacationing.

Thanks for the support! I assummed many of my families would be gone doing things anyway and I was right. Only the one family "needs" care that day. Gma will be here anyway so it's no big deal for them really, that mom just likes to complain about everything anyway.

I am only closed on the 4th. If it were to fall on a weekend I would close during the week though (if a holiday-except Easter- falls on a Sunday I observe it on Monday etc, most State agencies here and others do that.)
