About these T&C

This document provides you with a template for the terms under which your business will supply childcare to your clients, who are the parents.

Your business should employ babysitters, childminders, nannies or au-pairs. You may supply the same employee to the same family on a regular basis (for example, three days a week), or different employees on a regular basis, or any available childminder from your pool on an adhoc basis (for example, whenever the client needs a babysitter for an evening).

The main purposes of these terms are to manage the client’s expectations of the level of service you offer (what you can and can’t control, and what you need from them in order to provide the service) and to limit your liability should something happen that is outside of your control.

This contract is not suitable for a self-employed person. For that, use this alternative one. If you are an agency that matches self-employed carers with families, then use this agreement.

We also have an article on employment businesses and agencies that may be useful to read.
