Day care centers in Indiana are operated in homes, businesses, and churches. When a child is under the care and supervision of an Indiana day care center, it is vital that the staff members provide appropriate and timely supervision of the children under the care of the child care center. It is especially important to monitor the children and keep them away from risks and hazards in or near the facility. This is especially true when there are pools, bath tubs, ponds, lakes, and other bodies of water on or near the property of the Indiana day care center. Pools, tubs, and other areas should have enclosures, tarps, covers, gates, and other safety precautions when practical to have these items in place. A small child can drown in even a small amount of water. Because of this, all day care center employees should be well trained regarding safety precautions including those that should be put in place around water areas. It is well known that children lack safety awareness. Many small children see an area of water as a play area full of adventure. These children do not realize the true risk and danger of being in or near the water.

When a day care center undertakes to care for a child in a home, commerical, or church setting, a case can be pursued against the day care center if negligence or inattention lead to personal injuries or the death of the child. A tragic death was recently reported in Indianapolis, Indiana. It was reported that a 2 year old child drowned in a baptismal pool at the Praise and Worship Assembly of God Church. While the water was only 2 feet in depth, the pool depth was enough to lead to this most unfortunate drowning of the child. See 2 Year Old Drowns in Church Batsimal Pool.
When a child is injured at a day care center, an Indiana Child Injury Lawyer should be consulted for advice, consultation, and legal representation.
