I use an in-home day care provider---my child goes to their house. Do you think it's fair to pay if the child isn't there? For a day? For a complete week? Just wondering how others handle this. In most day care facilities around my area you pay whether the child is there or not; with in-home care it seems to be split 50/50---some charge, some don't.Answer Question

Yes because like the PP said, your child is taking up a spot, and there are laws putting a cap on how many kids they can watch.

Your child is occupying a slot that could be filled by another child, therefore the daycare provider could have made money that day. Yes. You should be paying whether your child is there or not. Home daycares are a business like any other.
