    Firstly, I would talk to the parent about the reason behind frequent late picking and ensure that the parent has a chance to share their emotions and then, I will explain how hard it gets for an young child to wait for 20 minutes, whereas all the other friends are already picked up by their parents. I would also let the parent know about the difficulties for the staff to stay up late after the work hours are over. Finally, I would let the parent know about the consequences if the late pick up repeats as per the childcare program policy.
