Just wanted to know what others do in the situation when the mindee's pick up from me is delayed because the parent(s) have been held up getting to me because of the atrocious weather. On Friday, one parent took nearly 90 minutes to get to me on what would have normally been a 10 minute journey.
So, the question is, would you make a charge for those extra 90 minutes?
I once had a mindee 3 hours late (due at 6, arrived at 9) due to floods and they normally take 10/15 mins to get to me. I did NOT charge because it was extreme and beyond their control. I would have charged the next day if they were late as they had enough warning to allow more time for it.
I am a parent who uses a CM for my DS and I would pay her. I also do ad hoc nannying and if I was nannying & parents were delayed by that long I would expect to be paid or given time back in lieu if do-able.
