Daycare Worker Negligence

When a child is dropped off at a daycare, parents have faith that their precious sons and daughters will be treated with the utmost care. They expect the daycare workers to provide the same vigilant care that they would if they were able to stay home with their children. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Many daycares use little discretion when hiring workers and have sub-par screening processes.

Every year the number of single-parent and double-income households increases. Because of this trend, the demand for daycare has become much greater than in years past. Due to supply and demand, many daycare companies believe they can get by offering subpar care for the children they are paid to watch. Parents may even be fooled into thinking that their children are receiving great care because the daycare workers put on a different face when the parents are around.

Negligent Acts at Daycares

There are many frightening offenses that can happen at daycares. Some of these include:

  • Failure to pay attention to each child’s specific needs. Children with medical issues or allergies are particularly in danger in these cases.
  • Unsafe conditions. Children may be in danger of catching diseases or hurting themselves.
  • Employees with anger management issues. These personality disorders may result in harm to your children.
  • Lying. Parents may receive untrue or inaccurate information about a child’s emotional or physical injury.
