What if my child is attacked or abused by a day care center owner employee volunteer? In Colorado and other States, parents rely on day care centers to provide supervision of children while parents are at work. It is vital that day care centers are staffed with caring and professional administrators, teachers, aides, and volunteers. Unfortunately, some owners and employees at day care centers are not well-trained and furthermore lack the patience, personality, and disposition to work with children. At times, some day care center owners and employees even resort to violence or threats of violence when faced with the challenges of caring for young children in the day care setting. Corporal punishment or the threat of corporate punishment at a day care center presents a real and present danger of harm to children enrolled in the day care center. When a child is harmed or threatened by day care center owner employee, there may be a civil cause of action or case to pursue against the day care center owner for your facility.
