Tired of having parents come up to you and ask basic questions that have been clearly addressed in your childcare’s Parent Handbook? Well, the fact is, most parents either ignore the handbook entirely or simply skim through the pages quickly. It’s most likely that they’ll forget all the details unless the book is distinctive and engaging.
The Inspire Care 360 Early Care and Education (ECE) Parent Handbook has been carefully designed and derived from the evaluation of top programs across the country. We believe that a Parent Handbook is more than merely a record of policies and procedures. It is a vital communication tool that will guide and educate families on your school’s vision, mission, dedication, and the level of care that you provide. Wouldn’t you love for your daycare’s Parent Handbook to instill confidence and a sense of pride in parents? That’s exactly what we intend to do with the IC360 ECE Parent Handbook.

There’s no doubt that printing several different childcares’ parent handbooks are costly. That’s why we offer our ECE Parent Handbook electronically. Not only does it save you time and money, it also helps you avoid confusion with policies and procedures like drop-off and pick-up times, sick policies and tuition.

Since the ECE Parent handbook is available electronically, it can be accessed anytime and anywhere. Unlike printed handbooks, which are hard to edit, replace or upgrade, the ECE Parent Handbook can be easily maintained and updated on a yearly basis. Therefore, any change in policy, procedure, or regulation can be added to the handbook with no extra cost or effort. Alternatively, if you want to retain your existing childcare parent handbook, then we will leverage it specifically for your schools. Our team of experts will also be happy to take an in-depth look at your handbook to evaluate it for consistency and flow.
Agreements & AcknowledgementsA highly effective way to ensure understanding and retention is to get parents and staff to acknowledge the information covered in the Parent Handbook. This could relate to the school’s vision, mission, values, philosophy, communication, program goals, policies, administrative procedures, security procedures, non-solicitation of your school, and much more. When information is acknowledged, there is higher accountability and awareness.
