Ugh, the audacity. And under what circumstances would a daycare close and a parent would still need to work?? I mean, if it’s an in-home provider, they would close for a week or so for vacation maybe?? In that case I thought it was standard for the person to help the parents find other fellow providers to bring their kids to for the week. The only other reason a daycare (in home or center) would close would be for bad weather....in that case, I guessss if you’re okay with it they can pay you for YOUR time and effort to take care of their kid. I just don’t see any other reason someone would assume they could “use” a stay at home parent for backup childcare. How annoying.
