The choice of leaving a child in the hands of another is one of the most difficult decisions that parents or guardians have to make. Certainly, a parent or legal guardian has the primary duty to keep the child under their care safe at all times. It is also the truth, however, that for some people, it is not possible to spend every moment of every day with the child. While some are fortunate that they can forego other responsibilities to focus on caring and supervising the kid, not everyone has that privilege. For the latter, they have no choice but to entrust to another the care and supervision of the child.

This is where daycare providers come in. These providers are referred to in different ways—nursery school, day nursery, daycare center or institution—but all of these essentially offer the same service, which is to provide supervision and care for young children during the daytime, in order for their parents to attend to their work during such time.

Definitely, parents and guardians have the right to expect that children are safe, treated well, and provided with nourishment and other necessities. The state, of course, expects the same and, in fact, set some standards and enforced relevant statutes, all for the benefit and safety of the child under a daycare provider. When providers fall short of these expectations, a daycare negligence or injury claim may potentially arise.

Common Signs of Daycare Negligence or Injury
