My daughter goes to daycare most days. I am self-employed and work from home, but travel for work sometimes. I work odd hours too, so I don't always need to take her in at 8:30 AM - sometimes 10AM works better for me. Some weeks I may work 25 hours, while other weeks I may work 50+ hours. Her dad is a teacher (we're divorced) and he picks her up sometimes. Right now he is teaching summer school and has a lot of flexibility in his schedule + Fridays off. Still, she needs to go to daycare most days. My problem is that the daycare staff (not her teachers, mostly the assistant director) is grumpy with me about the fact that her schedule is irregular. They want me to call every morning to let them know if she will be coming in and when; life is crazy around here and I sometimes forget. Then they call to bug me to find out and act pi**ed. I still pay them the full amount for a full week no matter what. What to do?

ven if you pay the full amount, if there is physical space, they can fill it and therefore collect more $. They are wanting to fill your untaken space with another child to increase their own pockets
That doesnt make sense....if they can have 7 babies in a room.....and 7 are paying....it doesnt matter if they all come or not...they will still only get paid for 7...
If one doesnt come, its just an easier day on the teacher.
she is paying, it doesnt matter if she comes or not.
