Today I’ve been researching contracts. Pacey and have some really useful information about what needs to go into a contracts. This is what I  discovered:

  • Each child should have their own contracts- siblings with the same childminder should have their own contract.
  • Contracts are legally binding once signed.
  • the contract should include:
  1. The childminders details including a phone number
  2. The child’s details such as name/ date of birth.
  3. the family’s details- parents names and addresses and phone numbers
  4. who has parental responsibility
  5. who is authorized to collect the child
  6. contracted days and hours
  7. payment details
  8. signatures and a review date.


This website has some good free templates which can be a good starting point:
