I am just starting my in home day care, im not licensed yet! But im not at the limit for an unlicenced day care..
I do have a contract.. nothing to scary.. rules, late fees.. pre-pay... nap time... no home made goodies.. time out... medicine.. allergies.. stuff like that.
Its not really for me.. its more.. so they know whats going on while their children are here.
Also it has "who can pick up my kids" who cant.. yano the basics
What would you think if you went to an in home day care and had to sign a contract.. ???
Also im meeting with my first clients tonight.. and im kind of nerves, because i could REALLY use the money id be bringing in..
Anyone have any tips?...

Awhile back I found this site to be informational- For state by state daycare regulations http://nrc.uchsc.edu/STATES/states.htm (just cut & paste). Good luck, don't be nervous, the parents most likely will be just as nervous placing their children in someone else's care. License or not, be sure not to take on more then you can handle.

I used to be a nanny. I can't imagine not signing something. It's to protect both parties. Be sure to include everything!! Nothing is too small to prevent future disputes. Be sure to add your policy on holidays, sick days and vacation plans. Clearly define sick procedures. What is too sick. If you have your own child, define when and what would happen. Including if your child needs to go to the doctor. (I have heard from so many friends, angry once they found out their child went here without knowing first) Cleary define procedure for notfying special activities. What about travel? Will you need a carseat provided? Im just thinking of emergencies and if you would like any field trips to the park or library. Good luck.
