Many parents depend on child care services for their infants, toddlers and pre-k children. 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 substantial monthly fees to care for and educate children while the parents are off at 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 children. Owners and operators of these facilities can be negligent in providing a safe and secure environment for children.
A child's safety should be paramount. Children are defenseless beings and do not have the physical or mental ability to communicate or express their injuries, abuses or accidents.
Common causes of injuries sustained at child care facilities include:
- Injuries from Dangerous Toys
- Playground Injuries
- Injuries from Teachers or Employees
- Injuries from other Children
- Falling Injuries
- Unsafe Premises
- Negligent Supervision
- Sexual Abuse
- Molestation Cases
- Drowning Accidents
- Physical Abuse
The most common child care facilities where child injuries and accidents occur can include:
- Nursery School
- Pre-K School
- Religious School
- Daycare School
- School for Disabled Children
- School for Handicapped Children
- School for the Blind or Death
- Public School
- Private School
- Child Care Service in Private Home
- After School Programs
