Childcare contract checklist

Make it Legal™ Checklist

Here are a few important steps to take to finish your document

Read the document to make sure it meets your needs and that you’ve provided all of the necessary information about the childcare arrangement. Remember that, if you have any questions, you can Ask a lawyer for advice.

The childcare provider and all parent(s) and/or guardian(s) must sign the Contract. If the childcare provider is a company or a partnership, its representative (ie signatory) must sign. 

The date of the Contract is the date on which the parties sign, if that is the same day. If they sign on different days, it is the day on which the last person signs. You can set a separate date on which the childcare services will start when you make your Contract.  

You can sign your Childcare Contract by either:

  • signing online using RocketSign, or

  • signing in print

    • print a copy for all parties. If the child has more than one parent or guardian, print a copy for each of them

    • all parties should sign and date both copies by hand. They can do this at different times, for example, if the childcare provider sends the parent(s) and/or guardian(s) multiple signed copies and asks them to sign them all, keep one each, and return one

All parties should keep their own original signed Contract.

A copy of your Childcare Contract will also be stored automatically in your Rocket Lawyer account ‘Dashboard’.
