Default Ind Contractor Classification

Can i classify this as independent contractors:

In child care we are all governed by and must operate according to the State and Federal law (even if you are a facility with children cleaning you must still obtain clearances, etc.)

I have workers who come to me from verified backgrounds in childcare.

They produce their own lesson plans

They produce their own schedules

They agree to operate according to the laws

I only provide assistance such as training reminders and law changing updates similar to a professional forum/discussion.

When they are out of compliance, they are not out of compliance with me they are out of compliance with the state and federal laws so I am not directly telling them what to do per say.

The only things that I control are building operations such as posting no-smoking signs and proper exit signs for building regulations, etc.

For the most part, they come in and do their lesson plans and leave.

I only request to see the lesson plans for postings of it on the walls. I only ask about their schedules so I know when they are in the building.

How am I in any controlling what they do?
Also, I read some of your responses saying they have to have an ein, etc. However, I am aware that one can operate a business as a sole proprietor using their Social Security number. What else would they need?
