Well, a lot of you know why I'm asking about sickness policy and a lot know that I've decided to do a firm bit in my newsletter and update the sickness policy and get parents to sign. Well.....I asked for advice at ds's nursery and another mindee's pre-school to find out their policy. Nursery said they send the child straight to the office to wait for collection, the pre-school said........get this.........they charge if parents don't collect within x amount of time. This pre-school manager is MUCH more assertive than me and well....good on her! She said the only way to get some parents to do what they are supposed to is by hitting them where it hurts...in the wallet
I'm going to ask in the nursery section what the sickness procedures are to get some idea's but just curious what others think about this charging if don't collect?
Also......she said that with a temperature that high (although having said that, the temp was the night before and near pickup time anyway but still....she clearly wasn't well), baby would have been at risk of febrile convulsions and she would have no problem saying to a parent 'collect or I'm calling an ambulance'.
God, why can't I be that assertive?!
Discuss everything related to paid childcare here, including childminders, nannies, nurseries and au pairs.
