Should I sign a daycare liability clause?

It is common for unsuspecting parents sign this document without this knowledge. It is important to understand your rights.

What are some signs of daycare neglect or abuse?

Some of the signs to be alert for if you believe your child is a victim of daycare neglect or abuse are as follows:

  • Failing to put away cleaning products, office supplies, such as paper clips or staplers, and more that are choking hazards or toxic risks to children. Daycares are responsible for ensuring they put away all things that may present hazards to children.
  • Rusty playground equipment, broken glass, or any other safety hazards outdoors present serious risks.
