A day care withdrawal letter typically includes the name of the child, the date of termination, and contact information for the parents or guardians. The parent or guardian should address the letter to the person at the day care center who is responsible for handling such matters. The parent or guardian should sign and date the letter.
The withdrawal letter may include other information the parent or guardian may wish to share, including the reason for the child's withdrawal. A parent or guardian should make sure she clearly articulates the letter's purpose.
A parent or guardian should also consult the day care contract prior to writing the withdrawal letter. The contract may provide details about withdrawing from the contract, which may include information the parent or guardian may need to include in the letter. The day care center should receive the letter far enough in advance to comply with the contract. Failure to comply with the contract's withdrawal clauses may result in fines or other required payments.
Parents and guardians should be mindful of the letter's tone. This is especially important if there is a chance the child or a sibling may return to the same day care center in the future.
