Many such personal injuries sustained by children at a day care center are avoidable.  At any given day care center, there are dangers for small children.   Even a mop bucket can be dangerous to a small child.  Yes, that’s right, a small child could drown in full mop bucket when there are no caregivers around to properly protect the child.  There are also electrical hazards to children.   There are many reports in which a child wanders out of a facility and into a nearby street or parking lot.
