Some services may want to include a general waiver / disclaimer for parents to sign as part of the enrolment form - or do this as a separate form.
The service may ask the parents/caregivers of a child with a serious health issue (e.g. anaphylaxis) to sign a release form before accepting the child’s enrolment. The service while knowing it will do its very best to care for the child may also be worried about a worst case scenario and unplanned situations (e.g. due to many of its regular staff being sick and away from work a relieving staff member might be on duty who has not had specific training for dealing with the health issue and is not familiar with the child’s emergency plan).
Information provided for ChildForum early childhood service members below includes:
- The main benefits of releases or waivers of liability signed by the parent
- What you need to know about the limitations and validity of any waiver
- Sample releases and wording for waivers (indemnity forms/ templates)
