Charging A Retainer

I discovered yesterday that the nursery I support is allowing two families to pull their children out of the nursery for the six week summer holiday and start them again in September without the families having to pay any kind of retainer to keep their children's places open. This ISN'T normal practice is it? What do other nurseries do?

I have always had to pay for the whole summer holidays, even when I wasn't working and daughter wasn't attending - i.e. paid a retainer to keep her place. I pay for 51 weeks of the year, minus bank holidays

I thought that most nurseries charged a retainer - who is to say that this child will ever return and you may have turned others away!

 

We give the parents 4 weeks holiday at 50% discount rate per year, so they could save this up and pay half price for four of the weeks, as for the other two weeks that would be full price i'm afraid :o
