Easy fix. Casinos operate on cards that monies are applied to from players for use on machines, tables, etc.

So players would use the casino card to check the kid into the daycare.

This is when the clock starts.

The balance tracker sets a "Not to go below" threshold on the balance that meets some set max timeframe for the kid to be in daycare (say 4hrs to keep the child advocates happy).

When the parent hits that amount threshold or time limit, their card freezes and they have to get the kid.
