We are simply following states regulations; Florida laws makes it mandatory for all individual who come in direct contact with children to be properly checked to ensure total and complete clearance before employment can begin.
Yes, although Knockdrop make it more convenient by letting the parent come to you as a provider if the parent and provider come to a complete agreement to let you come to their house feel free to do so, however all bookings and payment still need to be made through the knock drop platform.
Check with your landlord prior to starting your business. All residential leases contain specific language indicating what you are allowed to with the space. If the landlord gives you permission ensures that you receive it in written consent for future reference.
Yes, all registered providers should read the terms of use and agree to them before starting giving care. It is clearly noted that no providers are allowed to leave the premises while caring for a child unless the substitute is present. It is the provider’s responsibility to keep all guests, friends, and family members in check while a child is present in the home. Failure to do so and in any case of unfortunate events the registered provider(s) will be held responsible and face disciplinary and legal actions if necessary.
No, but you are required to successfully complete all trainings made mandatory by the state and the Department of children and families.

As stated in our term of use all providers are required to submit their new address within 10 days of moving and update their info on their dashboard; this will ensure that the information on your profile are accurate, that you are in compliance with zoning and parents will be able to find you quickly to keep business flowing smoothly for you.

If a provider moves and wants to stay in business with Knockdrop they must submit their new address within 10 days of moving and update their info on their dashboard; this will ensure that the information on your profile are accurate, that you are in compliance with zoning and avoid any issues with future background check that may result in delayed employment clearance and parents needing care will also be able to find you on our network.

We encourage outing especially if the child will stay a long time but this need to be previously discussed between you and the parent of the child, if an agreement is reached with complete written permission from the parent then enjoy the outdoors and remember safety first.
Knockdrop charges all provider $50 after one year for a mandatory annual review that will continue to happen every year; it is to ensure that all provider’s background check, accommodations, required trainings and all other requirements are satisfactory to keep you in business.
Yes, but be persuasive. Convince the parents why your services are now more valuable therefore more expensive than before, we recommend that you start with a newly updated bio which may include the new services you are willing to render such as washing the spare clothes a child was wearing, or school pickup..etc… And again anything the parent allows you to do should be in writing. (Emails or text messages)
Safely yes, if they are big enough have a chat with them so they understand why this (these) new child (ren) is (are) in the home. Children tend to be territorial but with the right communication, behaviors and attitude they can all interact together to play safely, learn, do crafts and make new friends in the process but never leave another child to watch the children unless they are 18 or older and listed as your substitute.
