Ive been running my home daycare for 20 years now and I feel like Im in a place of being very overwhelming and frustrated. I have 3 toddlers who spend the entire day screaming/shrieking out of frustration, irritation, happiness, tiredness etc. basically everything makes them scream. I want to cut back. But Im not sure if I let go of kids that were the last to start. Or the ones who make me crazy. Or the ones that are on state paid voucher and I recently went to a meeting about new policies that are now in effect which Im not totally on board with. Since the meeting a week ago I know of two providers who have dropped voucher. How do I decide who to term and what reasons do I give? Help!!!

Depends on what you need most.

I'd personally let the kids go that caused me the most stress.

I'm with BC. It sounds like the stressful ones are making your job and life miserable; keeping them won't change how you feel.

The only issue you mentioned causing you stress was the crazies so theyd be the first to go!
