Child Emergency Card

List all individuals, including parents/legal guardians, in order of preference, to be contacted in an emergency. If possible, include at least one person other than the parents/legal guardians to be contacted in an emergency and to whom the child can be released. The second phone number column can be left blank.

Vaccines Required for Child Care in Michigan

Whenever infants and children are brought into group settings, there is a chance for diseases to spread. Children must follow state vaccine laws in order to attend child care and preschool. These laws are the minimum standard for preventing disease outbreaks in group settings. The best way to protect your child from other serious diseases is to follow the recommended vaccination schedule at www.cdc.gov/vaccines.

The Ins and Outs of the Child Care Tax Credit

If you are paying someone to take care of your children or another person in your household while you work, you might be eligible for the child and dependent care credit. This credit gives back a portion of the money you spend on care, and can reduce your tax bill by hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
