In New York and other States, busy working parents rely on the staff and administration at day care centers to supervise their children during the work day.   Some parents select day care centers based on price and location only.  Others do a bit more homework and check out online reviews and State of New York inspection reports.  Lawmakers in New York are proposing a new rating system that would be similar in concept to that of restaurant ratings in which the rating is prominently displayed on premises.

Throughout the United States, children are being injured in youth sports every day.  Certainly, there are risks in most every sport. However, many injuries can be prevented with better supervision. Furthermore, when a child is injured, it is vital that coaches and trainers take timely action to address the injury and potential complications. This is especially true when a child suffers a head injury.

Nap Time - Moon and StarParents rely on day care centers during the working day to care of the child in an environment that is safe and clean.  One overlooked area of child care in a day care center can be the sleeping or napping arrangements.  Children especially infants are at risk for injury during sleep and nap time.   An infant should not be placed in an adult bed or even a toddler bed for that matter.   Pillows and soft objects should be removed from the crib area or sleeping area for the infant.  Swaddling is also something that many pediatricians and experts advise against.

In Ohio and other States, day care centers have a duty to properly staff and supervise children under the care of the day care center.  When corners are cut and rules are violated, children can and do get hurt. 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. This could have fatal consequences.  Again, many such incidents take place due to staff and supervision issues.   A watchful eye, common sense, due diligence, and a sense of caring can go a long way to providing for the health, safety, and welfare of children in the day care setting.

In New Jersey and other States, parents rely on day care centers to provide care and supervision of their infants.  In most instances, work  schedules put parents in a position of needing day care for their infants.  What kind of supervision should be provided to infants at day care centers?  The laws and regulations vary from State to State.  As such, it is important to look to the respective State’s day care center regulations to determine what is required as to staff to child ratios, training, supervision, facilities, licensures, and other requirements.  Infants require a higher level of supervision and attention while enrolled in a day care center.  Infants are especially at risks for choking, respiratory difficulties, SIDS (Suddent Infant Death Syndrome), and other complicatons.  Because of this, infants should not be left attended or under the watch of a baby monitor or other electronic device.  When a child has a respiratory or other problem at a day care center, it is important for the trained day care staff to spring into action.  Otherwise, the infant at the day care center is at risk for serious personal injuries and, in some tragic instances, an untimely death.   In Highland Park, New Jersey, it was reported by the Associated Press (AP) that a day care center worker was charged with one count of child endangerment for levaing a child unattended which was determined to be a contributing factor of the death of the infant.  The autopsy did not necessarily pin point the cause of death.  You can read more about this tragic story at Day Care Center Worker Charges in Infant’s Death in Highland Park, New Jersey.
