Has Your Daycare Failed to Protect Your Child from Injury?

Although your childcare provider promised to safeguard your child, your child ends up hurt or worse. Even more frustrating is that you may not get straight answers as to how it happened, or you’re told your child was hurt “playing” or by just “being a kid”.

Additional resources provided by the author

The Revised Code of Washington provides you with the statutes (laws passed by State Legislature) governing daycare facilities. They are an excellent resource to show you the standards to which daycares should be held and the responsibilities of the Department of Early Learning (DEL) in licensing and overseeing daycares in Washington. Likewise, the Washington Administrative Code gives a comprehensive list of Licensed Family Home Child Care Standards (daycare provided in someone’s home). Finally, the National Resource Center for Health and Safety in Child Care and Early Education is an organization dedicated to improving the quality and safety of child care and early education programs.
