Default Easter Monday??

Is anyone closing for the Monday after Easter? Iím just curious as to how many providers actually take that day as well as other Mondays or Fridays if the holiday falls on a weekend.

I used to close unpaid as a travel day when I took my kids out of town to celebrate. Now that they are adults I stay open, it is not a federal holiday.

I take Good Friday and Easter Monday. I have for years. We usually need it for a travel day. If not, I just enjoy it.

Yeah thatís why I said I donít take off any other days. Since itís always on Sunday and I donít do weekend care I am always off. It is not one of my listed paid holidays as it would never be on a business day. I do not take off Good Friday or Easter Monday to ďmake up for itĒ as my local school district always holds classes both of those days anyways.

It always boggles my mind that with the federal holidays (I take all of them) that is two weeks off I get every year.

Then I take 5 sick/personal days and one week vacation.

Why, why then does it feel like I get no time off when in reality that is the total of a month!!!!

I take my holidays as floater days if they fall over the weekend. I am not closed for Easter but closed that week for Spring break and the first vacation week. I take two weeks off a year.

I do take it off thou it's not a stat holiday. I don't take much time off threw the year and added both Easter Monday and Civic Day (first Monday in aug). It gives me an extra long weekend between family day (febuary) and may long. My parents know when they sign the contract.
My husband dose work Easter Monday but schools are closed so I spend the day with my kids.

I didnt the first year and regretted it, as well as good friday because i ended up watching like two/seven families. one that was working sales, and one that just thought it would be nice to have a no kids day because the daycare is open and they are off work!
so yes i do, i don't mark easter monday as a paid holiday though its a paid vacation day for me, but good friday i do paid holiday. i take those long weekends when i can and notice most families go out of town to take advantage and go with me family as well so its like in sync with them.

Are you doing day care related things when you have time off? I'm usually doing something related like curriculum planning, paperwork, taxes, cleaning the day care room, laundering blankets and sheets, preparing photo albums for when they go off to school, taking online classes, etc.

And no, I don't take the Monday after Easter off.

We follow the local school district calendar and am off the entire week following Easter for Spring Break.

I have a carpet clean scheduled, a major spring cleaning crew coming in and several projects to do for the program so maybe 1/2 the time will I actually be "off".....

Nope. Easter Monday isnít a holiday. Most years spring break doesnít coincide with Easter so my kids would have to be in school anyway.
