In Oklahoma and other states, hard working parents rely on day care centers for the proper supervision and education of their children. With both single parents and dual income parents, day care centers have become a necessity in order for parents to support their children. Most day care centers do a fine job in caring for children in a loving and nurturing way; however, there are far too many child care providers out there who lack the maturity, patience, responsibility, and common sense to serve as a proper day care provider.

In Georgia and other states, day care centers provide working parents with an ability to fulfill work responsibilities and place their children in an environment that is supposedly safe and operated by trained staff members. When caring for infants, toddlers, and small children, there are risks of injury with everyday activities of daily living like feeding time, play time, and, yes, even nap or sleep time. A high chair can pose a risk of injury to a child if the child is not properly strapped in AND supervised in a consistent manner by the day care center staff.
