    Statutory Holidays

    I am working on my parent handbook - fees policies. Wondering how other caregivers do when the statutory holidays are on the weekends? Will you take extra day off on Monday? How do you write it properly?

    Yes the Monday after a statutory holiday is the day I take off.

    I wrote in my handbook .......When a Statutory Holiday falls on a weekend the daycare will be closed on the following Monday
    Then I listed days the daycare will be closed from Jan 1st , Feb Family Day Easter Friday and Easter Monday etc.
    It is a good idea to look up the calendar and mark in the dates of each holiday you are off so it is clear .

    Yes, I do the same as Van. I look up bank holidays to determine which day most of the world is taking as the replacement day for the holiday. I do a list of all paid stats for the full year for all clients so there is no confusion about which days are stats.

    You have to have it clearly in your contracts if this is going to be your policy.

    Mine lists out all the stats and public holidays, clearly states I will be closed, that these are paid days and if they fall on the weekend, I will be closed next business day in lieu. As long as that's clear, and disclosed when parents sign up, you are covered.

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.
