Parent said today (at 8am) I might not bring child tomorrow, not sure yet but I'll phone you laterSo at 5:30 I texted to ask what decision she had madeNo replySo I rang, child answered Mummy is busyRang again, 20 mins later, child answered Mummy is busySo Texted at 7pmNo replyNow normally it wouldn't matter - I work Fridays, so it's not an issue. But tomorrow DH is at Papworth again, so I have 2 employees coming in to coverAll the other children (5 of them) have unexpectedly cancelled, so this is the only child attending.Now I have to pay the employees anyway but it would have been nice to give them the day offBut I can't do that now so I'm a bit sadYou can see the confusion
I would send a text saying you are assuming they are not coming as they said they would let you know.This is the same one that forgot the child right? I'd be giving them notice.
Completely! I'd give them the day off and txt mother to say you assume she doesn't want you.'
I would but I just laid off a member of staff because we are so short of childrenIf it was just DH & I, I would - but because we are responsible for 4 other people livelihood I can't really
If it wasn't for them I would have said not to come back again (after yesterday)
Bit odd that the child is saying mummy's busy. Looks like the only thing you can do is keep txtng and ringing her then.
Can't be bothered
I think a text saying that you will assume not wanting place and not to turn up as closing for the day etc etc if don't hear by say 10pm.
Got a phone call (I didn't answer) & a message saying she doesn't need care Friday or MondaySo I cancelled my staff
