When a parent sends a child to a day care center, it is expected that the child will be safe and out of danger. Unfortunately, at times, injuries take place at day care centers. Some incidents are unexpected and could not have been prevented. While others could have been easily prevented through better supervision and safety precautions.
In Perth, Australia, a toddler was bitten by a venomous snake. Fortunately, he got the treatment that he needed and is expected to survive this trauma that could have ended this child’s life.
Snakes in day care centers are far from common. However, other types of injuries take place at day care centers on a more common basis. These include falls, bus accidents, corporal punishment, and playground incidents. Day care center owners and care givers should use their best efforts to keep children safe and out of harm’s way.
