    Field Trips / Outings - do parents pay extra for this?

    For those of you who take your daycare kids on field trips/outings to places that require admission fees, etc...do you ask the parents to cover this, or is it something you take into consideration when setting your daily rate and you pay for it? Are there certain trips that you pay for, and others you ask the parents to pay for? I'd like to see what everyone else does.

    I factor all field trips into my fees - I do my best to find FREE options low cost - they are a write off anyway and something I offer for ME as much as my crew cause change of a scenery helps us all!
    Children construct their own intelligence. The adult must provide activities and context, but most of all must be able to listen. Children need proof that adults believe in them. Their three great desires are to be listened to, to understand, and to demonstrate that they are exactly what we expect."

A few tips...

Do not hesitate to refer to this article to help you choose a daycare provider, know which questions to ask, have an idea of what to look for...
We expect providers to keep their listing and available openings up-to-date. However, to prevent oversights, openings expire after 45 days.
