In Wyoming, parents, who have a child enrolled in a day care center or who are searching for a day care center, should be aware of the general licensing standards, rules, and regulations for day care centers for the State of Wyoming. For day care centers in Wyoming, the Department of Family Services – Early Childhood Programs Division is the government agency that licenses and regulates day care centers throughout the State of Wyoming. A good resource for parents is the website for this government agency which is located at Early Childhood Programs Division. While this website and related links have a good amount of information, parents with children enrolled in a Wyoming day care center should also exercise their own due diligence to investigate and periodically spot check the day care center. This may include reviewing government surveys, visiting the facility, participating as a volunteer, reading the policies and procedures for the facility, and having a basic understanding of the rules and regulations governing day care centers located in the State of Wyoming.
Generally, Wyoming day care centers have a duty to provide a reasonably safe educational environment for children. Furthermore, day care centers should consistently and timely provide supervision for the children. By adhering to these basic principles of quality child care, many incidents and injuries can be avoided. Unfortunately, children, at times, are the unfortunate victims of an incident or accident in a day care center. When a child suffers an injury as a result of the negligence or fault of the day care center, the concerned parent(s) should contact a Wyoming Child Injury Lawyer for advice, consultation, and legal representation.
The book titled – The ABCs of Child Injury – Legal Rights of the Injured Child – What Every Parent Should Know – has chapters on Day Care Center Injuries, Medical Treatment / Medical Bills, and other issues. You can get this book for free at The ABCs of Child Injury.
