How to Spot a Negligent Daycare Facility
Choosing daycare for your little one can be a difficult, time-consuming task.
You want to ensure their safety and well-being is taken into account at all times.
Sadly, negligence does occur in daycare facilities.
To minimize the risk of injury to your child, it’s important to spot the signs of a negligent daycare facility before enrolling your child there.
- Improper ratio of daycare personnel to children
- Clutter or office supplies within a child’s reach
- Cleaning supplies in a child’s reach
- Unsafe conditions in the home, childcare centers, or outdoor areas such as sharp objects and edges, fireplaces, or glass
- Activities and games not properly supervised
If you’re already enrolled, paying proper attention to your child after daycare is also important to find warning signs of daycare abuse.
Warning signs of daycare abuse or a traumatic event include:
- Unexplained bruises, scratches or other minor injuries
- Changes in behavior
- Hungry and thirsty at pick-up
- Recurring nightmares
- Your child acts out in social situations
- Fear of other children
If your child has been injured due to neglect by childcare providers, then it’s possible you may be entitled to compensation.
