Managing Legal Risks in Early Childhood Programs


This is a book on legal risks for child care center directors and program administrators.

Can my child care program be sued? If you have ever asked yourself this question, you are not alone. This guide will help you prevent and manage problems with potential legal consequences, reduce the risk of a lawsuit, and assist you in preparing a strong defense should your program be sued.

This practical book covers a wide range of topics, including privacy issues, accusations of discrimination, employee hiring/firing practices, and insurance coverage.

This easy-to-use guide includes:

* Vignettes of everyday dilemmas, such as what to say to a parent or caregiver who may be under the influence or what to do if no one picks up a child.

* Proven solutions and innovative approaches for each dilemma.

* “Think About It” sidebars to assist in the decision-making process.

* Sample parental consent and waiver forms.

I co-authored this book with Holly Elissa Bruno, an author, keynote speaker, and radio host at BAM Radio Network, “The Voice of the Education Community.”
