Default Transportation Permission Slip, Parent Sent This To Me

I have a transport permission slip that one of my families refused to sign. So i asked them to come up with their own. This is what they sent me...


• We recognize that as with any activity involving motor vehicle transportation, there exists the potential for accidents resulting in bodily injury and/ or loss of limb or life.
• We acknowledge that there exists the potential of a vehicular accident occurring while our child or children are being transported while under the care of the ***XCXDaycare.
• I, we assume the healthcare expenses relating from any such accident, illness or other incapacity which may occur while our child or children are under the care of The ***XX Daycare.
• Daycare provider has and maintains valid and adequate vehicle and liability insurance to provide an umbrella of coverage for all occupants of The DC transportation vehicles.


what do you guys have??

Why would you allow a parent to change your policies??

If a parent refused to sign one of my forms they would not be enrolled.

Was there a reason?

This is what my State gives us:
PERMISSION TO TAKE THE CHILD OFF THE PREMISES

I hereby give _______________________________________(Name of Family Child Care Provider) permission to take my child, _____________________________________, on excursions from the family day care home that might include the following types of activities:




(The provider should fill in the above list with activities that she might provide away from home.
Examples might include trips to the store, riding in the car, swimming, etc.)

Parent/Guardian Date

they have been here for almost two years. I had to changed insurance companies and so therefore had to change my policy. They didn't like what I had so I said fine, I am not going to argue, make one up yourself and give it to me.. I have not accepted it yet.

They did not like that if I a parent decides to drive their own children to a Field trip, then the children will not be covered under my policy. They also may NOT transport any other children other than their own.

Smart cookie. That is the exact same policy as my entire school system... I guess I don't have to worry too much about you after all.

I did not like it back when my kids were in Elementary and we were not allowed to let them ride in our car as we followed the bus on field trips. Adult chaperone's were required to provide own transportation but the kids HAD to ride the bus to be covered for the duration of each field trip.

I have the general permission form signed but when we go on fieldtrips to the zoo or parks even a circus I create a specific permission slip for that specific trip that day and the parents have the choice to sign or find alternate care for that day. Never had a parent not sign off.

Do you have a general permission form even for going out on walks? Do you require parents to sign if you drive to the library EVERY tuesday for example?

I don't have a seperate permission slip but I do have a travel section in my HB that clearly explains that the children do travel by bus, car and foot without notice to the parents. The only time I give advance warning of an outing is if it affects naptime. We go to a county exhibition every August for the day for example. My best friend's uncle lets the kids go on one of the parade floats and it's a highlight of their year. <3

Signing my contract means you agree and will abide by my PH. Is that good enough or should I be thinking about a seperate permission slip?

Tell the parents that you have all parents sign the SAME form. Tell them that the decision is completely theirs. Let them know that they can choose not to give consent however, on days that field trips are schduled they will need to make alternate care arrangements at their own expense and no credits or refunds will be given for the missed days.

Walks on the trail or to the playground and such are covered in the basic permission form and handbook and is signed at enrollment or they cannot enroll as the basic walks are a part of our program. When we go to the library, zoo, park, circus or any special outting I do make up a permission slip and have each signed for that particular event with the date and all on it. These are kept in each child folder fo refrence if I would ever need it. If it was a weekly routine trip to the library I would just create a permission slip for that for each child and have it signed once as it will be routine and be expected.

I rarely take the kids on errands maybe twice a year if that so when something pops up I will inform the parent verbally of the time we will be going and if she consents fine if not then I have to make other arrangments but I don't get a signature for that because it is mentioned in the handbook and falls under basic permission for transporting.

I agree, if they do not sign your permission slip, then they will not be able to go. They will also find their own childcare, and not be refunded for that day.

Ditto! I would never let a parent write their own rules for MY day care!

If you let them do their own transportation policy, then you have to let another parent write their own sick policy...and another write their own late fees policy..
