Child Injury Prevention in Texas: 7 Questions to Ask Day Care Centers

As a parent, when you're faced with a suspicious child head injury, you may be hesitant or even reluctant to consider the possibility that someone has abused your child, particularly someone to whom you trusted your child's protection. A Texas personal injury lawyer who has experience in handling these cases can help you get justice for your child against negligent or abusive caretakers. 

First Step in Child Injury Prevention

When you consider sending your child to a day care center, it's vital to your peace of mind and to the security of your child that you ask questions about how your child will be monitored, interacted with, and disciplined.

Questions for day care centers:
 

  • Is the facility licensed? If not, why not?
  • Are parents permitted to visit the facility and make surprise visits?
  • What's the ratio of adults to children?
  • Are children ever left alone with adults?
  • Does the facility run background checks on all of its personnel?
  • Are the children ever transported in vehicles? If so, what are the driver requirements and what safety protocol is followed? and
  • How is discipline handled? Are the policies in writing and available to parents? 

If the day care center is unable or unwilling to answer your questions to your satisfaction, review whether you think you should send your child to that facility.
