Default Soooo Glad

I lucked out and have parents that pick up their kids within ten hours MAX of drop off time and often even within seven or eight hours of drop off time !

Iíve got it easy compared most it seems (I pretty much always work only 9.5 hours) Fridayís are only a half day for me too but Iím a new provider and this job is damn hard!
Just posting this because I just saw a meme with many likes and shares that says ďI donít care how much I miss my children, I am NOT picking them up early from daycareĒ !! With laughing emojis.

Iíd be so done by now m if I had parents like that. An early day here and there makes allllll the difference for me!

I have not seen that meme, but am not surprised by it.

Gotta get that moneys worth and all.

Fast forward 20 years and listen to the same ones whine about how the kids never call or visit.

I am old enough to watch it play out with my peers. I just sit back and shake my head because I know Bitter Becky dumped her kids every chance she got all through the 90's. They go to visit the neighbors moms, though.

I have one kid who is here 9.5hrs 7-4:30pm but I work usually a full 10 because one kid comes from 9am to nearly 5pm! It is exhausting. Then I have a mom who wants me to keep her kid up during nap, meaning she does not want me to have a break at all during the day so she can put her kid to bed at 6pm after having spent all day doing nothing....not happening

Haha, I have a child who is in preschool from 12-3 pm and the parent brings her back to daycare so she can be here from 3 to 4:30. And the parent is not at work, but at home when he does that! It is maddening!

I am advertised open from 7AM-5:30PM. I typically have children in care from 7:50-5:15PM. I am very picky about who I let in when I do have openings and I honestly canít see myself enrolling anyone that needs care earlier or later than the children I currently have enrolled.

We are open from 6am-6pm and if anyone is late, they pay $1.00 per minute to whomever closes. If we are there before 6, we don't let anyone in until time and Our owner stated in the policy that we love the children but that we have duties outside the daycare. (Get your kids and leave)

I would never allow that.
Simply because it's way too hard for the child to endure multiple drop offs/pick ups per day and I wouldn't like the disruption overall.

I have one DCK that attends preschool elsewhere but only 2 days per week and on those days the parent picks child up from daycare at 11:30 and then the grandmother picks child up from preschool at 3:00 and keeps the child until the parent is off work at 4:30.

If grandmother wasn't available to do so, parent wouldn't have enrolled child as I wouldn't allow them to return to care. Too disruptive overall.
