What Child Care Business Owners Should Know About Labor Laws


Do you have employees? If so, it is vital that you visit the United States Department of Labor Website and become familiar with Labor Laws.

The mission of the US. Dept of Labor is as follows: “To foster, promote, and develop the welfare of the wage earners, job seekers, and retirees of the United States; improve working conditions; advance opportunities for profitable employment; and assure work-related benefits and rights.”

Moreover, the US. Department of Labor is a great resource for employers and provides helpful tools and resources to assure that employers comply with Labor Laws.

Something to think about….What you don’t know can hurt your business and could lead to a Labor Hearing or a Lawsuit.  

This post is not intended to frighten you, but to empower you and is not only intended for center owners. If you have employees in your home; labor laws apply to you too. Also, if you plan to open a center; you must definitely become familiar with Labor Laws!

Be sure to visit the U.S. Department of Labor website today; become familiar with all the Labor Laws that pertain to your business  and check out the resources that are available to you as an employer.

Furthermore, my intention today is to encourage you to review your current personnel/labor practices, make any necessary changes, protect your business and empower your self as an employer!

When employees are treated like family,

they’re far less likely to betray the company for personal gain.

As I write this blog post, I am feeling so much appreciation for my staff. In fact, our annual Open House is only 2-days away and the teachers have been working really hard on their classrooms.

One week prior to writing this blog post, I held a 15-minute staff meeting and I shared  what my vision was for Open House and that included:

  • Fun Activities for the kids
  • Creative decor on the walls
  • An apple theme
  • Well organized classrooms
  • Welcome new families to our center
  • Open the center to the community

I must say that my staff has done exceedingly abundantly  above all that I could have imagined that they could do.

If you are  following my personal page on facebook, you may have noticed that I have posted pictures of my open house banner and I have been tweeting about leadership and staff, because this week I have learned so much about how to get your staff to exceed your expectations!

Check out the Thank you Memo below that I issued to my teachers:

In summary, I want you to know that its more work to do it all by yourself, however, it takes motivation and positive leadership to get your staff to help you  build a successful childcare business!

To Your Success,
