What is a Day Care Policy Statement?
Whether you're opening a new day care facility, managing one, or just trying to get your day care's documents in order, a Day Care Policy Statement is a useful way to state the guidelines by which your child care facility will operate. Parents who wish to use your services can learn about your specific policies.
With a Day Care Policy Statement, you can provide a range of details about your day care, including: the philosophy/mission statement of your day care, your personal background and qualifications, the age and number of children accepted, hours of operation, fees, holiday and vacation times, program activities, meals, toilet training, naps and rest time, and medical care. In detailing your policies, it is best to ensure that you have (or can get) the necessary supplies, equipment, staff, and facilities to implement them. Your state and local governments may have various laws and regulations in place that you must follow. The Day Care Policy Statement does not address all possible laws and regulations, so you should consult your state and local child care regulations to make sure that your policies are consistent with them.
When to use a Day Care Policy Statement:
You manage a day care but there's no uniform policy in place.
You're opening a new day care.
