  • Start charging an extra fee for late parents! Not sure how much that should be. But I think most daycares do after a certain amount of time late. Say like after 30 mins late you start charging a fee.

  • Just like SalenWitchChild said after 30 minutes of being late charge a late fee PER CHILD, and $1 a minute after the 30 minutes. I bet that whoever it is will pick their kids up on time.

  • Well since you don't charge them simply inform the parents when they do pick the child up that if they do it again you will no watch their child again. Be nice and polite about it, but make sure they realize it bothers you. I tell them I have something to do at a certain time (usually about 1.5 hours after they are supposed to be there) and that helps get their butts back there.
