What is a Child Care Authorization Form?
A Child Care Authorization is a form that allows someone to temporarily care for or make decisions about your child, such as allowing your nanny to pick up your child from daycare. Child Care Authorizations help document that you are entrusting your children to a childcare provider and gives them limited powers to make decisions in regards to your children.
Create a Child Care Authorization to define the terms when another person can make decisions about your child.
If you want to grant legal authority to make major decisions, create a Power of Attorney for Child instead.
When to use a Child Care Authorization:
- You would like to authorize your child’s school to release your child to another individual.
- You would like to give authorization for another individual to make decisions regarding your child in your unexpected absence.
