Family Child Care Business Kit

As someone that uses computer resources incessantly, I still have a strong desire to print my documents and keep my important and original documents in hard copy in filing cabinets.  Sometimes I am not sure what to label my files and what paperwork I should put where.  What makes it worse is that making the folders and labels is NEVER on my list of priorities.  Therefore, I have HUGE stacks of unfiled papers all over my office! 

If I were a family child care provider I would be so excited to have this kit that solves those problems for me!

When providing the best possible care for the children in your home and then spending time with your family, buying file folders, determining what file folders need to be made and then making them so they don't look like one of your toddlers made the folders is a time consuming chore!  NAFCC has  made this so easy for you!  A ready to use filing system for the Family Child Business!

The beautifully printed and color coded folders include sections for the following:

  • Business Mail
  • Business Income
  • Business Expenses
  • Food Program (CACFP)
  • Provider
  • Children
  • Resources

The kit comes with a short easy-to-read guide and many of the file folders have notes on them to provide you with an idea of what should go in the folder. 

For example:

  • Section: Business Expenses
  • Label: Insurance
  • Contents (notes section): Business Liability Insurance, Renters/Vehicle and Workers Compensation Fund

Additional Resources provided with the Business Kit Purchase!

This kit was made in partnership with:

  • Tom Copeland, who is a phenomenal advocate and knowledgeable business and tax attorney focused on the business of family child care.  Tom is providing 4 hours consultation with the purchase of this kit; and
  • Minute Menu Systems, LLC, provides a 6 month subscription to Minute Menu Kids Pro.  This software has some great accounting and business management tools for the child care provider.

You must check out the Family Child Care Business Kit and see how it can be incredibly useful to you and your business!

If you are attending the NAFCC conference you can see one in person, meet Tom Copeland and part of the Minute Menu team!  We hope to see you there!


Samantha Marshall, M.A.

Samantha is, just like you, excited to make a difference in our community and our world. With a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, you might ask how she found herself building and writing for a website focused on child care. From 1995 through 2001, Samantha started her career working for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) sponsors which introduced her to the importance of non-profits, community and quality child care. Her experience with Sponsors, State Officials, and Family Child Care Providers left a great and lasting impression. Later in her career and her most recent position at SAGE Publications, an academic publisher, was as a product manager for a new online resource! During this time many of Samantha's passions collided. A love for the written word, children and the proliferation of knowledge as well as a fascination with the resources the internet gives us, building a community for child care on is the perfect way to make the difference she wanted to. Needless to say, she is very excited to be an active part of creating and building
