How does Daycare work?

I have worked for numerous daycares but never was really told how paying worked? I am getting a job at a daycare but I will be placing my son in the same daycare as well. Will I have to pay a weeks payment up front or what? I am sure every daycare is different and I have my interview tomorrow and plan on asking them but what was it like for you?

  • i worked at a daycare and some parents paid weekly (not ahead of time) and some paid monthly. some daycares have a discount for employees who bring their chidren, but its usually after 30 to 90 days. when you go in just ask the director how their program works. good luck!

  • We pay per month. They charge a credit card.
