Many parents depend on child care services for their infants, toddlers and pre-k children while they work.  According to the National Center for Education Statistics, it is estimated that nearly 13 million children are enrolled in some sort of child care service.  Unfortunately, every year in the U.S., thousands of children are hurt or injured while in a child care setting. 

In today's world, day care and pre-k schools charge heavy monthly fees to care for and educate your child while you work.  At a minimum, parents expect and believe that their child's safety will be secured.  Sadly, child care facilities, pre-k schools or day care schools are not always a safe haven for your child when you're not around.  Owners and operators of these facilities can be negligent in providing a safe and secure environment for your child.
