Are there laws on legal billing practices?  For what you can and cannot charge for, vacations, late fees etc....

That's a good question.  If there are laws I do not know of them.  I called around to area daycare centers and homes and asked what they charged.  That's how I decided what to charge.

No. It is a private business. You set your rates.

I knew what I had to earn to stay home, how many kids I was legally allowed to keep and what I had to spend to open for business.... Simple math after that.

Obviously, if you want to stay in business you need to stay competitive...

Good luck!!!

I think you can charge for whatever you want as long as it is written out in a policy that the parents have reviewed and signed. That protects you when they say they didn't know what you charged for. I charge the parents for their vacations/absences but I do not charge them for the week that I take each year. That way if they schedule their vacation when I do, they don't have to pay.
