Question Business Paperwork: How Many Types Do You Have?

As most of you know, I'm just preparing for opening a daycare next year. I would like to see how many different papers you keep on hand for business paperwork. Really what I'm asking is--what are the titles of the papers organized for your daycare business?

This is what I'm looking to see...(pretty much things I will eventually make copies for parents or to be displayed in the house)

1. Handbook
2. Contract
3. Holding Contract (for a later start date)
4. Field Trip Permission Form
5. Infant Daily Report Sheet
6. Food Calendar (to show the meals we serve)
7. Emergency Drills (Fire/Tornado)
8. Medication Release Form

Make sure to add what is required by law too. I think we have a few enrollment forms required so those obviously count. I just don't know what they are unless I look.

I'm also trying to figure out how many file folders I'm going to need in the end so I know if I should purchase a desk with a built-in filing cabinet or just a smaller portable filing system for all the "fill out the form" paperwork I'll have available at any given time. This will be decided on from how much of a list we all can come up with to add to mine above. THANKS IN ADVANCE Please add to my current list and put (required) behind what you add if it's a requirement.

LOL allthough I have been in biz for over a year, I am in the same boat, about to revise all of my stuff.

here are what I have:

1 contract
2. Parent handbook
3. FT permission slip
4. Permission to photograph/website
5.Various letters.....late payment reminder, reminder of rules letter, reminder of contract,
6. Parents night out contact if you want one, im crazy my PNO is free once a month
7. Potty training contract, as it does not apply to all and is only given when parent and provider agrees to start the child.

I think i might have a few more... I make a lot of revisions...lol usually when I get screwd over...pardon my french......
