Our daycare still gets paid when the provider is on her vacation. Any days that she takes off and gives us notice of beforehand (like more than a months notice), we are still expected to pay.
This is in the handbook, and while it can be very frustrating esp since we have to find and pay a back-up babysitter, I completely understand why she does it.
My days off at work are paid and she works hard taking care of my child, so she deserves paid time off as well.
Now, if a daycare provider is taking an extreme amount of time off or not really giving very much notice, then I would probably have a talk with her about it.

Don't you get paid vacation at your place of work? I would hope so!

for those who either have an in home daycare or take their LO's to one....does your provider still except payment when THEY go on vacation. I know i have to pay even if i dont take ella but she expects payment when she is closed for her vacation. she doesnt provide back up care so i have to still pay her and find someone else to watch Ella that week. Does this make sense? Input please?
