Rights of the Injured Child - Legal Responsibilities of the Day Care Center

A Florida Day Care Center should be a safe haven for children. Children should be provided with activities and supervision commensurate with each child's abilities, needs, and situation. Parents should be able to rely on a Florida Day Care Center to provide for the needs of their children. Many Day Care Centers provide a wonderful educational and custodial environment for children; however, some Day Care Centers, whether it is a moment of inattention or a pattern of neglect, allow children to become victims of preventable personal injuries and, in some cases, the wrongful death of the child. The legal duties of a Florida Day Care Center including its staff, employees, and child care providers are delineated in Florida Statutes, the Florida Administrative Code, and Florida Case Law. While it is important for Florida Day Care Centers to know the law, rules, and regulations, it is also important for Florida Day Care Centers and their staff members to have common sense and the ability to make decisions and take initiative when children are at risk for personal injuries or suffer personal injuries that need First Aid and / or medical attention. Here is a list of Frequently Asked Questions / Issues - Florida Day Care Centers / Florida Child Care Centers that arise when a child suffers a personal injury as the result of negligence or neglect at a Florida Day Care Center. The information is also helpful for parents who just want to learn more about the rights of a child in a Florida Day Care Center and the legal responsibilities and duties of the Florida Day Care Center and its staff.
