    No shows/late shows

    Well.... had an interview scheduled for..... ten minutes ago. Call me silly, but I have absolutely no interest in taking on a client that can't be on time for an interview. My thinking is, if they don't respect my time now, how on earth can I believe that they will respect it later??? Oh well, I guess they didn't want the spot that badly. At least my house is really clean now!

    I have same view. Not considerate of my time from the begin, never will be. But I would call too.

    If I have interview, I e-mail night before to remind so then if they forgot they have time to cancel. And after 15 mins late, I telephone too. Just in case there been accident. But I not reschedule for forgets or stupid reason.

    Two years ago, I had two spots to fill for a couple of months. Took me forever to fill them. There were several complete no-shows, a couple called to cancel after the appointment time and a couple who came, did all the paperwork and then I never heard from them again. I was reading in a different post yesterday that a lot of people do on-the-phone interviews first. I honestly never considered that, I think I will try that in the future.

    No, they never showed.

    To top off this day, I had a parent dose and drop. I can't prove that they did it, but I'm not stupid. This kid is always showing up here sick, and I am always having to put my foot down about it. I contacted her about an hour ago, and she asked if I could still keep him until the end of the day. Ummm.... no. Really?!?

    It's one thing to be late but a complete no show really ticks me off. What I've done is after a parent has booked an interview I let them know that if for whatever reason they can't make it, to please let me know via either email or phone. Surprisingly it worked and I haven't had a no show since I started saying this.

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.
