Day care operators and employees have a duty to properly supervise the children under their care. At times, children hurt each other and without consistent and timely intervention – serious injuries can occur. A disturbing incident took place at the Kidology Day Care in Milwaukee Wisconsin. Video surveillance recorded a 3 year old attacking an 11 month year old girl. The baby suffered injuries from the 3 year old biting her and punching her. The case is being investigated by law enforcement and child care licensing officials.
It is most unsettling a baby suffered injuries at the hands of another child while under the supposed care and supervision of a Wisconsin day care center. This case should serve as an important reminder that older and larger children can pose a danger to smaller ones in the day care center setting. It should also serve as a reminder of the importance of supervision at all times in day care centers especially when watching and supervising infants and toddlers.
