Q?Do I pay for holiday and vacation closures?
A.

Parent’s pay for 1 of 2 vacation weeks.

I usually close for 1 full week and break up the other week. To make it easier on parents the full week off is usually the week I do not charge for. This makes this weeks child care funds available to the parent for alternate care.

Children learn a preschool like curriculum. Iowa licenses preschools separate from home child care providers.
