those of you who do daycare preschool what days are you closed?
New Year's Day
4th of July
Columbus Day for inservice
We're open Friday with about 30 kids, we're just watching movies and stuff (1 staff member for infants, 1 room open for todd's/2's, and one room open for 3's-school age)... same for the 2 weeks the public schools are closed around Christmas and New Year's... we're open, but aren't doing "curriculum" (and the parents HAVE been told this).
My daycare/preschool is sort of different. There are 11 rooms from infants up to pre-k. Nine of the rooms are run full day like a typical daycare. They have The typical days off (Thanksgiving & Friday after, Christmas day, New years day, etc.)
The other two classrooms (mine is one of them) are part time pre-k. My class is only 9-12 mon-fri. We run on the public school calendar, so I'm off wed-fri this week, two & a half weeks over Christmas, spring break, summer and all the little days off here and there through the year that the schools have. I LOVE having that schedule!! I'm at work by 8:00 every day, finish between 12:30 and 2:00, depending on what I have to do (how much cleaning, lesson planning, etc). It's perfect for me!!
Our preschool is a little different I guess. We are a private preschool and we follow the calendar of the public school in the district we are in.
Our public school is out this week- Wednesday, Thursday and frriday and so are we.
I am closed:
New Year Eve
New Year Day
Thanksgiving and the day after
The Monday after Easter

I,too, follow the school calendar. Whatever days they are out, we are out, too (that goes for Spring Break, Holiday Break, and any professional development days). I only teach TWTh so that knocks out most Monday holidays anyway.
