Either say ' sorry I did tell you there might not be a space unless you booked a regular day/s' or put in for a variation. If it's only a few days here and there you shouldn't have a problem getting it.

:rolleyes: Tough toots on them really sin't it, it's not your problem it's theirs for not getting sorted sooner!
you did warn them - just remind them what had been said and say its' too late. Do you know another minder who could accomodate their odd days?

Just say " sorry bit i cannot do any days in the holidays as it will put me over my legal numbers" end of story. They will have to use a holiday club. :panic:
As it has been said this is not your problem.

Tell them tough luck you warned them that the place may not be available and they took the risk so its their own fault.
