The Oklahoma Department of Human Services took action to shut down a child care center (Creations Childrens Learning Center). It was reported that the center was closed after a child was injured without the staff’s knowledge due to a lack of supervision. A parent of the injured child had discovered the injury and the child was taken for medical treatment at an emergency room. Previously, a child had left the child care center and no staff members noticed immediately. The Department of Human Resources report that both incidents were due to a lack of supervision. The Department of Human Resources licenses and regulates day care centers / child care centers in Oklahoma.
It is important for day care staff members and caregivers to provide proper and consistent supervision in the day care setting. Children should not suffer personal injuries that could have been avoided with more diligent care and supervision. You can read more about this story at DHS Shuts Down Oklahoma Day Care Center.
