i have always thought that.
and to the theory that everyone else gets PTO, so they should to, that is simply not true. not everyone gets paid time off. not everyone gets paid for holidays.

I still think it is bullshit. The owner should provide for holidays and such to their employees. Why do parents get the burden?
I work for a LTC facility. We get paid for the days they are under our care. why should kidcare be any different?
I guess I would only be questioning your 6 days of pto.
Quoting Loveplusmama:Our daycare is closed 6 days a year. We get a free week for vacation. However they will only call off for severe snow days (they usually dont clise when the district closes). I pay for our sick days, but I am ok with that.
Do you pay your employees for those six days you are closed? I think that is a choice made by you, the employer. Do not charge me for days my kid isn't there. If I don't bring him, fine, if you are closed that day....efff you....why should I pay for a service you won't and didn't provide that day?
Quoting Marti123:I think it is fair that the daycare business owner has consistent revenue even with holidays. The lease on the building, benefits to the employees, etc. does not get pro-rated for the holiday.
I know some in-home providers do only charge on a day by day basis, maybe that would work better for you?
