Child care background checks brought to light
area conference brought to light issues over child care and the best practices that ought to be remembered, but often aren’t. More than 70 child care facilities attended the conference in Bloomington, IL to discuss various aspects of child care – from background checks and responsibility to tax preparation and record keeping. One of the main discussions was that of liability insurance. Many parents don’t know that if a child is hurt at an unlicensed child care home without liability insurance, “it’s up to you”, said Tom Copeland, a guest speaker at the event. It’s everyone’s responsibility to ensure that this kind of situation does not arise, but ultimately, it’s going to be down to the parents to make the correct checks. Another topic was just what goes on when you drop your child off at a day care center or leave them with a babysitter. Some people think that caregivers just sit around and watch the kids, but there’s a lot more to it than that. Dawn Wickenhauser has provided child care for about a decade, and offers breakfast, does calender time, teaches her students basics about letters and numbers, and organizes outings. It’s an important role, and should be considered as such. The most important part of sorting out child care for your children is, however, the background screening checks you complete before leaving your child with a stranger. Ensure that you get this right, otherwise there may be some awful consequences further down the line.]]>
