In Phoenix, Arizona and other States, parents rely on day care centers to provide a safe and clean environment while the parents are at work. The day care center has a duty to provide consistent supervision so that the children are kept safe and free from dangers and hazards. Unfortunately, some day care centers put a child at risk for personal injuries when the supervision is lacking. It is vital that day care centers have policies, procedures, and safeguards in place to prevent children from wandering out of the facility. In Phoenix, Arizona, it was reported by the local news that a child wandered away from a day care center. Fortunately, the child did not suffer any serious personal injuries and was returned safely to the day care center and ultimately to the child’s family. While there were no injuries reported, the risks were still there and actions should be taken by this facility to prevent future incidents of this nature.

It is a challenge to be a parent. There are challenges to finding the right day care center, finding the right babysitter, helping children with their homework, getting the child to right doctor, etc. . . It is even more challenging for a parent when a child suffers a personal injury as a result of the fault or negligence of another person, school, day care center, motorist, or other entity. The book titled – The ABCs of Child Injury – What Every Parent Should Know – has chapters on Day Care Center Injuries, School Injuries, Medical Treatment / Medical Bills, Damages / Compensation, Sports Injuries, and other topics.
