In Potsdam, New York, the Watertown Daily Times reported that a day care center was cited with violations of day care laws and regulations. The New York Office of Children and Family Services is the New York government agency charged with licensing and supervising day care center. It was reported that Build Blocks Day Care Center was cited with over two dozen violations over the past two years. See N New York Day Care Center Cited with Violation of Day Care Regulations. It was noted in the article that the violation of a day care regulation does not necessarily mean that a facility is a “good” day care facility or a “bad” day care facility. This is probably an accurate statement; however, compliance with New York day care standards including those pertaining to safety, playgrounds, staffing, and supervision can help prevent or avoid many incidents that do cause serious personal injuries to children enrolled in a day care program.
It can be quite difficult for a parent to deal with an unexpected child injury that takes place at a New York day care center or child care center.
