In Connecticut and other States, children are enrolled in day care centers to allow their parents to work their jobs. Many day care centers are well run and do a wonderful job of supervising and caring for the children in the day care center program. Unfortunately, at times, children are the victims of poor care, inadequate supervision, and, in some cases, abuse and neglect by the very same day care center providers who are responsible for their care. When a child is abused or neglected at a Connecticut Day Care Center, it is often times helpful to consult with a Child Injury Lawyer to determine the respective rights to compensation and damages of the injured child.
It was recently reported that a day care center owner was arrested in Connecticut. The day care center allegedly locked a 6 month old girl in a crawl space to hide the girl from a health inspector. The little girl may have been locked in the area for as long as four hours. The day care center was charged with risk of injury to a minor child.

It is important for every day care center to provide a safe and clean learning environment for children under their case. The indoor facilities should be well ventilated and all infants and babies should be well attended and supervised due to their susceptibility to injury and health problems.
