Family child care record keeping guide
This is the one and foremost essential book that any family child care provider needs. You cannot live without this one.

I do my own taxes every year with this workbook and organizer. I would recommend buying it yearly and giving it to your tax preparer if you hire it done. Most tax preparers don’t know all the laws that pertain to family child care. It’s a unique niche of tax rules.
He also has a tax companion.
Redleaf Press Calendar keeper
The calendar keeper is a must-have for me also. I buy one yearly and keep all of my records on it. I would totally recommend it. There is so much useful information in it, plus it has a place to keep your dates and upcoming information as well as daily sign in and out sheets with a place to keep your payment records.
You’ll have your times, attendance, and payments all in one place if you use this tool. There are worksheets in the back and an envelope to keep your receipts for the month as well. It’s a great time and energy saver at tax time to have all your records in one place with this.
Contracts and policies
Tom can help you with contracts and policies
And Tom has other great resources as well! Anything Tom writes is of great value to family child care providers! He’s a wonderful advocate. I don’t work for Tom, I’m just a great fan and appreciate all he does for our field.
