  • I will not charge for missed days. I do however request proper notice. Don't leave me

    waiting and wondering if your child will show all day.

    Pay is appreciated upfront in the beginning of the week. However other arrangements

    may be made. First payment will be prorated and yet again is appreciated upfront on the

    day care begins.

    Over nights and late nights is accepted with at 48 – 72 hr notice extra will be needed no

    exceptions upfront. $20.00 per night. Price may be negotiated depending on circumstance.

    If you write a check I will except it but the first bounced check means you may no longer

    pay in form of a check. You will also receive a $25.00 bounced check fee. Late payment

    will be ok on occasion however if reoccurring you will receive a $5.00 late pay fee.

  • cool thank you

    Answer by hot-mama86 at 11:48 AM on Aug. 12, 2009

  • I added two things just now. Diapers must be provided for if your bag runs out I will cover extras. Once your child uses whole bag you will be expected to refund through new bag or cash.
    Also I will be taking photo of child for purposes of possible missing persons. Though nothing is expected it is better safe than sorry.

    Answer by hot-mama86 at 12:01 PM on Aug. 12, 2009

  • Ummm, you can't take pictures of juveniles for missing persons reasons. You can take pictures to put up as far as what the kids did during the day/week but I would not sign the contract if I knew you were taking pictures of my children in case they wound up missing. To me that would lead me to believe that missing children is such an often occurance that you have now gone to the extent to retain photos for future police investigations. Not good. That is the parent's call to leave pictures of the child with the police for an AMBER alert.
