Are Child Care Facilities at Gyms Regulated by the State? What If My Child Is Injured?
By David Wolf, Attorney
Published by Child Injury Lawyer Network
In California and other States, parents rely on day care centers, schools, after school programs, camps, and gyms for child care. In most instances, the children are supervised in a caring environment. Depending on the State, size, and location of the child care facility or program, the child care center may or may not be required to have a day care license by the applicable licensing authority.
For instance, in California, day care and child care provided by a gym are not regulated by the State agency authority. As such, these facilities are not supervised or monitored aas a licensed day care center facility. While many such facilities are safe and provide adequate supervision, the lack of regulations and oversight can be troubling for a parent. See California Day Care Centers at Gyms Are Not Licensed.
