Early Childhood Forms

There are a variety of forms needed to create an effective early childhood business, including forms to document business transactions and participation in local, state, and federal programs.  Forms do create extensive paperwork; however, without this documentation your business could be in jeopardy of closing. So don’t make the mistake that so many business owners make each year by neglecting good documentation practices; instead, use forms for every aspect of your business. 

The most important forms that must be completed are the Child Care Licensing Forms. Contact the SC-CCRRN to receive on-site technical assistance in the management and filing system of required forms to maintain the quality of your program. You can reach SC-CCRRN by phone at  1-888-335-1002 or e-mail at scccrr@mailbox.sc.edu.
