I hear you loud & clear hunni and its a frustrationi that many of us mothers share.
Parents out there do send their child to daycare sick, I know they have to work to earn a living, but if it were me and this is very personal, I would put my sick child above my job.
Kids when they are sick need their mummy, I'd hate to leave my sick child with a stranger, especially when they are clingy & cuddly.
Having to pay fee's sure is annoying too, I send my son to an ABC daycare and they 'reduce' the fee's which is ok I guess, but I give them ample notice, you'd think that they would use those days for other parents & make them pay for it rather than leaving it empty & making me pay for something I don't use.
But yes, I hear where your coming from. You poor lil girl, my son is 18 months old and he's quite sick at the moment, I hate that he can't blow his nose!
Hope she's well & back to her happy & normal self again!
