Dangers of the Lack of Supervision in Daycare

When parents put their children in daycare and pay for that care at often high rates, it is expected that the adults present will provide the supervision that creates a safe environment. However, sometimes lack of supervision in daycare facilities results in innocent children being injured unduly. The attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. know that many Madison parents are facing situations like this and can help them evaluate their legal options.

Common Dangers

When there is appropriate supervision in daycares, children are much less likely to suffer injury. However, in cases where such supervision is lax or absent altogether, the potential for injury skyrockets. Some of the dangerous situations that might result from a lack of supervision in a daycare facility include:

  • Choking
  • Consumption of dangerous substances
  • Rough-play injuries between children
  • Falling accidents
  • Cuts from throwing objects
  • Drowning

These are, of course, not the only dangers that could result from an adult’s lax supervision, but they are among the more commonly reported. As a concerned, affected parent, you have a right to hold the negligent adult accountable for not supervising properly.
