Negligent Child Supervision

Negligence in the care and supervision of children at daycare can occur in many forms. Those who may be responsible include teachers, visitors to the premises, and other staff.

Examples of daycare negligence includes:

  • Insufficient staff to properly supervise all the children in their care
  • Failure to properly monitor or control a child who bullies or threatens other children
  • Failure to properly provide and maintain safe playground equipment or other child care equipment or toys
  • Failure to properly protect children from traffic, swimming pools, animals, and more while supervising them both off and on the premises

Common accidents that can occur due to daycare negligence include falling off playground equipment, tripping over objects, and fighting among children. Unsanitary conditions may also lead to illness or injury.
