    Strange. I've never had anyone (kids or parents) except a take-home snack. It wouldn't have even crossed my mind to provide one. Parents know what time I serve a snack so they should understand that...

    I agree that it depends on the area. Where I live, I see a demand for good childcare, regardless of age. Many providers are able to fill their spots quickly. However, what I have noticed that there...

    I was actually going to say the same thing as 5 Little Monkeys. It sounds like he might still need a quick morning nap, which will hopefully lead to a longer nap in the afternoon.
