This resource was developed by the Childcare Coalition as a guide to lay out a set of community standards for hiring and working with childcare providers in ways that honor their time, energy, and experience. It provides a sample employment contract, information about labor laws, and questions to consider when seeking employment or hiring a childcare provider. This guide gives both providers and families the information they need to make equitable, informed choices in an employer/employee relationship.
