Small claims court? Even threatening can sometimes help.
Also is she registered/accredited? You could get in touch with her agency?

I'm currently looking into several in the Yonge/Dambroisio/BigBay/Madeline Area, this is all new to me!. I would like some good reviews of ones around that area. My son is 4yrs old I want to prep him for Kindergarden. Looking for the Best Atmosphere, Clean, Safe, Healthy Snacks, Reliable, Friendly, Fenced Yard, Arts, Crafts AND Learning. NO Dogs at the Daycare. Please let me know if theres a better one that isnt listed in the poll. Thanks!!  :)
I typically advise parents that during transition phase, it's best to keep visits including the parent to about 2 hrs or less the first day as the other children's routine is affected with guests visiting.  It's also better for their own child not to associate the parent too much with the daycare. If parents stay long, their child begins to think they are a part of the DC.  Best to visit 2 hrs first day, less the 2nd and leave for 1/2 hr, hopefully by the 3rd day the parent leaves immediately, with a smile even if child is crying, for half a day or so.
Running a Daycare / Subsidized vs. non-subsidized daycares

If I open a private home daycare in Quebec and charge $35 a day, will my parents be reiumbursed any of that by the government?  I'm just wondering if I would get more clientelle as a subsidized daycare, and I also want to avoid clients leaving if they DO eventualy get a subsidized spot somewhere...

Running a Daycare / how to let a family go?
« Last post by dayhomemomof3 on March 19, 2015, 11:58:51 AM »
good morning, I have been running my day home for the last 15 years and never have had to let a family go yet.  I am thankful I have had all amazing families so far.  but I am looking at letting a p/t family with 3 kids go, to replace them with 2 before and after school kids as this will fit my schedule much better.  I am just wondering what I should say to them and if I should put it in writing? How much notice should I give?

thanks for any help.

My daughter started at Kids and company in January. We chose it primarily because of the setting and clean environment. Would love to hear other parents' experiences with Kids and Company.
