Holiday Care Contract & Forms

Providing Holiday Care Sessions can be an excellent way of topping up your income…
  • you can fill spaces that would otherwise lie empty whilst term time only children are not in attendance.
  • you can offer extra hours to children who would normally be in school or attend nursery for part of the day.
  • you can provide holiday care camps to fill your spaces and introduce new families to your service.

However you manage your setting during the school holidays, it is important that you set out professional arrangements for all children… especially those who are not otherwise covered by a full time contract.

Importance Of A Contract

A contract should be agreed at the beginning of any professional childcare arrangement to clarify, from the start, the terms and conditions between all parties involved. Childcare fees, charges and payment instructions can be set out clearly along with any other agreed special arrangements. A childcare contract is a legally binding document which provides protection for both parents and childminders and may be used in a small claims court, should either party wish to pursue legal assistance.

Before parents leave children in your care, it is vital that you obtain the necessary consents and information such as emergency contact details and other important information relevant to their child, for example; allergies, special dietary requirements, medical conditions or additional support needs. This form will enable you to collect this essential information whilst also giving parents the opportunity to provide you with further details about their child such as likes and dislikes, fears, favourite activities, nap times, etc, so as you can ensure their wellbeing and comfort.
