The Family Day Care Providers' Legal Handbook.
Treadwell, Lujuana Wolfe
Designed specifically for family day care providers in Alameda County, California, this handbook provides legal and business advice thought to be useful as well to providers throughout the United States. A wide range of legal and business issues is covered in 15 brief chapters. Advice is offered on provider-parent contracts, planning for accidents and emergencies, licensing requirements, and local laws and ordinances governing day care operations. Legal rights of the day care provider, issues related to advocacy and support for family day care, caring for children who are sick and children with special needs, custody disputes, and providers' obligations under child abuse and neglect laws are also discussed. Remaining chapters address the use of small claims courts to collect fees owed, business planning and bookkeeping, tax obligations, government subsidies for children in family day care, and obtaining loans for the family day care business. Twenty-three copyrighted sample forms, written to be legally effective and easy to understand and designed so that they can be copied and used by providers are also included. (Author/RH)
