I'm sure this changes in different areas, but thought I would check with you guys. (I am in Colorado, btw)

I am re-doing my contract and handbook and want to make sure I have all the required things in there.

I know I have to have who can pick up, medical information (doctors, insurance, known allergies, etc,) Media release, parent contact information, and immunization information... but I want to make sure I don't take anything else out that I'm required to have.

I know this is an old thread but here in Alabama we use a readmission form that is in our Department of Human Resources minimum standards for daytime care book, we have a policy packet that includes all of our policies such as payment policies, sick policies etc, a payment agreement, IEINform, permission to photo, permission for FB access and walking field trips, and an agreement that if something happens that we are not responsible

Although many programs use those types of waivers, unfortunately they won’t protect you from liability.

When caring for kids you are always liable
Parents can not waive their child’s rights

Here is more info about it
