What is a Child Care Instructions?

If you've organized child care for your child, you can use Child Care Instructions to provide crucial information to the child care provider, whether it is an at-home nanny, daycare center, or simply a babysitter. It is a helpful document which enables you to list all the important things pertaining to the specific needs of your child. 
You could consider Child Care Instructions as a how-to-guide, FAQ, and emergency information sheet, all in one document. You can provide phone numbers, medical information, and special instructions to those who have the responsibility of looking after your child. As you don't want to assume that a temporary caregiver will remember every little detail you mention, Child Care Instructions puts everything in writing. This document can help ensure that your child is safe and that their care provider has the necessary details. Please note that this worksheet does not grant specific powers to the caretaker; it just provides information for the care of your child.

When to use a Child Care Instructions:

  • You want to give the critical info about your child to their babysitter or daycare provider.
  • You own a daycare and want to keep a file on every child.
