Child Care Authorization

Child Care Authorization

It is good to know that you have someone who you trust and can take care of your children while you are at work, out of town or even out of the country for such a long period of time. In some scenarios like in school, since the school where your child is currently enrolled is also responsible for the security and safety of your child, they are not going to allow different individuals to come and pick your child up from school.  Schools are also requiring the parents to make Child care authorization letters in cases like these. So as a parent we need to make this form to prevent confusions.

What to include in making Child Care Authorization form:

  1. The name of your child
  2. The name of the different individuals who will be the child care provider.
  3. The date interval of the authorization e.g. this grant of temporary authority shall begin on (starting date) and end on (end date).

You can also include: unless terminated earlier by any of the parents.

  1. The agreement and responsibility of both child care providers and parents should be stated in the form.

e.g. seek appropriate medical treatment or attention on behalf of the minor children s may be required by circumstance, including but not limited to, medical doctor and/or hospital visits.

Sign release forms for sports and field trips.

  1. And lastly, the form should be clearly signed by both the mother and the father of the child (one parent in some cases) by the child care provider and the name of your child.

Child Care Authorization
Review List

This review list is provided to inform you about this document in question and assist you in its preparation. Child Care Authorization is an underused document that can be very useful to get prompt medical or other attention to your children in an emergency. We strongly recommend that you keep health cards and related information with this Authorization so the Child Care Provider is totally prepared in case of an emergency, which is not time to be hunting up medical permissions or documents.

You should keep this document on the front hall table for easy access by the Provider. You can always suggest they keep a second copy in their car or yours, if they use it.

You should always execute this document if leaving home on an overnight, but especially if you are leaving home for any extended period of time and have another person caring for your children.

1. Sign multiple copies. Give one or more to the Provider and keep them as suggested above.

2. This well care document can be very useful. As a practical matter, print out several after filling in the blanks and have them readily available so you use them when gone on trips.
