This is a template for a self-employed childminder or carer who works in the family home of the child.
It is a short agreement, designed to give you strong legal protection, without seeming threatening to your clients. The main purposes of the document are to set out the expectations of both sides, and to make sure you comply with the law regarding providing services to people in their own homes.
For example, it covers:
- your relationship with the child
- the obligations of the parents for discipline and managing the household
- what work you will carry out and your availability
- payment and expenses
- limitation of your liability
