Smile Parent Handbook/Contract

Is a parent handbook the same as a contract?

What order should I put the information into the contract?

I have a list so far, let me know what I'm missing and what order it should go in....
Drop-In Care
Closed Dates
Immunization and Health Care Records
Becoming Sick While at Daycare
Medical Emergencies
Medication Administration
Field Trips
Meals and Snacks
Naps and Rest
Behavior Guidance
Potty Training
Changes to the Policy
Vacation Days
Sources of Medical Care (911, Police, Hospital Choice)
Open Doors Policy

I removed a few categories from this Parent Handbook because it came from a daycare center my sister's kids are currently enrolled in and I need to create documents for my daycare opening next year. I like they have information on Pets because they have a pet cat at there daycare and I also have cats myself so I can easily adopt that topic!

I have a policy on how to handle divorced parents & custody issues. I require a copy of their custody order, so I know when each parent is "supposed" to have the child, and I need a written note if the NCP is picking up on a day that is not his day.

Late fees?

Overtime fees?

Early drop off fees?

Night care?


Allergies? Food pets meds

I have a policy handbook & a contract. My contract is pretty much an outline of all the money issues in the policy.
