Default If A Family Leaves Your Care And Gives You..

a termination letter signed dated etc..do you make them sign anything on top of it? Have your own forms for them to sign? If so do you have examples?

You should always have your own forms to ensure that you have all the information you need.
Our form asks for contact info, child's name and birth date, list old schedule, list new schedule (or check box for withdrawal) and the date the new schedule starts (or last day of care).

I also have my own form. It states:
This is to give notice that as of *date*, *child's name* will no longer be attending Sunny Days Child Care. Both parties are in agreement to the terms and reasons for termination. Reason: (if applicable) *I then state why the care is being terminated" and have both my self and the parent(s) sign and date. I keep this copy for my records and if the parent's want one, will copy it for them.
Hope that helps!

I have a sheet that says care will be terminated on ___ date and the following amount is due _______. I have them pay up for the remainder of care right then so I don't get a bad check at the end (happened 1x and never will fall for that again.)

In my classes that I took, i was told the less you say that better. You dont have to give reason, as the contract is an at will contract. If you have a PHB then it could be for any or all of the reasons listed in the PHB.

I have a few samples I can PM if you would like.

Was all the necessary info in that term letter? Last day, acknowledgement of 2 week notice and pay, any reasons for terming?

If was signed and dated and had the info you need, I probably wouldn't give them my own paperwork. I'd sign theirs with any comments I wanted written on it, and give them a photocopy back.
