I don't get any paid sick days nor vacation time. I don't charge for my vacation time either. However...I'm thinking of adding 5 paid sick days per year when I'm ready to revise my contract.

I'm closed AND paid for:

New Year's Day
July 4th
Thanksgiving and the day after
Christmas Eve
Christmas Day

Also, I take up to two weeks of paid vacation

No sick days. If I close unexpectedly parents are not required to pay. The parents can take vacation and do not have to pay as long as they give me the required notice.

I think that's it I also take 12 days paid. And am normally closed on Fridays during the summer. When I interview I tell them on the phone and ask if they have good back up care otherwise I won't be a good fit for them.
