Abuse can happen in many different forms and it is important to know some of the common signs as well as have open communication with your child about their experience with daycare workers, other children, and the facility. Of course, children can unintentionally injure themselves while playing, without any form of abuse, so it is important to speak with them about the daycare provider and the daycare injury they suffered to help determine what happened.

If you suspect your child has suffered daycare injuries and abuse, you should investigate further and possibly remove your child from the program. You can also file a report with local law enforcement or child protective services instead of going straight to the daycare center. An experienced daycare injury lawyer can also help provide resources as well as provide legal advice.

Long-Term Effects of Daycare Sex Abuse

Abuse can affect everyone differently, and experiencing sexual or physical abuse at daycare centers while children are still learning can impact them longer term. A child's injuries can lead to permanent scaring or physical difficulties, while emotional or sexual abuse can lead to other behavioral issues. It is important to speak with your child if you begin to notice changes in their behavior. Assuring them that they will not get in trouble for telling on a teacher or adult at the childcare center who hurts them, makes them feel bad or uncomfortable can help your child feel comfortable talking about what has happened.

Frequently Asked Questions About Daycare Child Abuse

Parents or guardians may have many questions about abuse and neglect that may happen at daycare. Our attorneys have answered some of the most common questions. Still have questions? Call one of our local law offices today to learn more about your legal options against daycare facilities and to speak with an attorney today.

What To Do If You Suspect Abuse in a Daycare Facility?

If you suspect your child's injury or sudden change in behavior is due to abuse at daycare centers, it is important to talk with your child in a safe place but to also take steps in determining what has happened. It can be scary to accuse someone of child neglect or sexual abuse, especially if you are uncertain about what has fully happened.

If you suspect your child has been abused, take a visit to your pediatrician. Your doctor is someone who will be familiar with your child and may also be able to spot different signs of abuse and provide more information on the next steps. It is also important to report the facility or daycare provider to the local authorities who can further investigate the facility and staff member.

Why Is Daycare Neglect and Abuse Common?

Abuse by daycare providers or within the facility can happen due to many reasons. Some common Given their critical function in society—caring for babies and young children whose parents need to be at work or are otherwise unable to supervise them—advocates for victims of child sex abuse say there should be more governmental oversight and state regulations for such facilities.

Often, there is little to no staff training for a daycare providers, which can limit their knowledge of the problem of childhood sexual abuse and how to prevent it from happening. Daycare providers should also be aware of the common signs of abuse and report anything they may think has happened.

Understaffing or overloading facilities can also make it difficult for adults to watch all the children. If there are too many children or not enough staff, it can be difficult to notice inappropriate behavior. Having an appropriate amount of staff to child ratio is important for providing proper oversight.

Poor or non-existent hiring protocols can also lead to daycare abuse cases. A childcare facility should have thorough hiring requirements and background checks, but often due to inadequate staffing, facilities may ignore regulations to get staff in more quickly.

While not always possible to do a full investigation, parents should research the facility they are enrolling their child in and search for any previous citation, potential criminal charges, and reviews.
