    Having trouble going to sleep at night is often a sign of an overtired child. I often remind parents that sleep begets sleep. I would try increasing the nap time for a few weeks to see what happens....

    Of course you should claim it! A slippery driveway is a liability to your daycare business. A daycare is a business and snow removal is a normal business expense. I think we tend to short-change...

    Yeah, my husband thinks I'm being draconian, but I figure my closing time has always been the same and they should have found a different provider if 5:30 was going to be difficult for them.

A few tips...

Always ensure that your child receives quality care by taking the time to investigate the provider and by asking for references! We simply cannot verify the claims of every daycare provider.
Updates
We expect providers to keep their listing and available openings up-to-date. However, to prevent oversights, openings expire after 45 days.
