Placing your child in a daycare can be an emotional time. You want to pick the best place for them. Daycares have laws that keep the facilities safe, hygienic, and a good environment for young children. When they don’t follow these rules, children can get hurt. Negligent daycares can harm children and their age makes it difficult to vocalize any issues of abuse.

What Are Signs of Daycare Negligence?
Daycares need attentive, compassionate people running them so nothing is overlooked. Growing kids are curious and often don’t have a concept of what’s dangerous. They need constant supervision and without it, kids can get hurt or in the worst cases, lose their lives.
Some children will start behaving differently if they’ve been subject to daycare negligence. They may cry or be upset at the thought of going to the daycare. Others may say they’re sick so they don’t have to go. A sudden and uncharacteristic habit of fighting could indicate abuse. Other major red flags include finding unexplained bruises or other physical injuries on your child.
What Should a Reputable Daycare Have?
If you’re worried about the standards of your child’s daycare, you may not know how to investigate it. Keep an eye out for the following signs of a safe and responsible daycare:
- Appropriate Caregiver to Child Ratio
- Safety Standards and Access to First Aid
- Children Are Hydrated and Nourished
- Clean Restroom Facilities
- Strict Policies Against Any Form of Abuse
If you notice that your daycare deviates from these points, like a poor caregiver to child ratio or a dirty environment, there’s a higher chance of negligence occurring. You may want to start looking at different daycares.
