A Child Care Service Agreement is a document used by two parties where a child care provider agrees to care for a family's children and the family agrees to pay the provider for this services. This Agreement allows the provider and the family to outline the scope of their relationship and describe the specifics of the child care services that will be provided. This document can be used both by families who wish to hire a child care provider as well as child care providers who wish to provide their services to a family.
Often, individuals enter into business relationships without having all the details of the parties' relationship written down. By discussing the specifics of the Agreement ahead of time, both the family and child care provider can make sure that their needs and wishes about the business relationship are known and respected. Further, a thorough Child Care Service Agreement can protect all parties if something goes wrong.

All Service Agreements are subject to both federal and state laws that cover general contract principles governing how contracts are created and interpreted by courts. Federal laws may restrict what services can be contracted for (for example, illegal services may not be contracted for) and certain broad categories, like contracting for something that looks more like an employment relationship, but individual state laws may govern the interpretation of the contract in case of a dispute.
