Day care centers are commonly used by families all over the country. Parents assume that children are being cared for in a supportive learning environment by caring child care providers. Child care workers are expected to be responsible, dependable, and patient. Training should be completed pursuant to state and local day care regulations for each worker to to being officially employed by the day care center.
Video surveillance at a day care center can help document many incidents that in the past were “swept under the rug” or hidden by the day care center. Without the benefit of video surveillance, many incidents of child abuse were kept quiet. Day care center workers would claim ignorance, “I do not know what happened.” Alternatively, the day care center worker would make up a story, “Johnny fell while running on the playground.”
