Things to Expect from Your Provider

Things Your Child Care Provider Will Expect From You:
 
  • Open Communication - clearly and carefully share what your wishes and expectations are. Be open to hearing about problems or issues your provider needs help with.
  • Agreement to Contracts and Policies - fully understand the provider's expectations of you and any paperwork you have signed.
  • Honesty & Trust -be honest about how you feel things are working, and whether your child is happy with the provider. Be honest about your child's health & special needs.
  • No Surprises - respect the provider's time. Give at least two weeks notice if you are going to stop using their services or take time off.
  • Pick Up Your Child on Time - your provider has a family and a life outside of the business. Respecting your provider's schedule will help build a long lasting, positive relationship.
  • Tell Your Provider of Schedule Changes - never expect extra and unannounced hours. Always make sure there is room. Let the provider know right away if your child is going to be absent.
  • Back-up Provider - have a back-up provider in case your provider is sick or has an emergency.
  • Keep your child home when sick - by law, your provider is not allowed to have a sick child in care. Have plans for backup child care. Tell your provider what is wrong with your child, even if your child stays home.
 
Below is a list of health issues your child may be excluded for:
  • Vomiting - Two or more times in 24 hours
  • Rash- Body rash, especially with a fever or itching.
  • Lice or nits
  • Diarrhea - 3 or more watery stools in 24 hours
  • Eye infection - Thick mucus or pus draining from the eye
  • Sore throat - With a fever or swollen glands
  • Not feeling very good - Unusually pale, tired, lack of appetite, confused or cranky
  • Fever - Temperature of 100 degrees (F) or more (taken under the arm) and sore throat, rash, vomiting, diarrhea, earache or just not feeling good.
 
Things to Expect From Your Provider:
 
  • Open Communication - you get regular updates on your child's progress and problems.
  • Open Access - you are welcome to drop in any time their child is in care, even without calling first.
  • Safety For Your Child - your provider takes all the steps to keep children safe. Outlets are plugged. Stairways are closed off. Sharp objects and poisonous materials are put away. Proper safety seats are used for transporting. Children are monitored at all times.
  • Honesty & Confidence - your provider clearly shares with you any accident or behavior issues.
  • Qualified Personnel - you are told whenever someone other than your provider will be caring for your child. That person is trustworthy and properly trained. 
  • No Surprises - your provider gives you fair notice of any changes in their schedule. The contract states when they have planned time off.
