Common Causes of Injuries at Daycare Centers
One essential qualification to become a daycare worker should be an abundant amount of patience. Hardworking parents are trusting strangers with their kids’ lives. They should feel at ease and confident when dropping them off in the morning. The least a daycare facility can do is hire employees with the correct attributes to be with children all day long. We have been seeing a lot more cases of children being mistreated or injured because of an unqualified employee.
What Happened Here?
An employee at The Children’s Courtyard (Plano) has been fired from the facility for slamming an 18-month-old child onto the floor in an attempt to get the toddler to nap. The child’s mother witnessed this incident happen while on her lunch break through the live stream from the daycare. Follow this link to read the full story.
This is a prime example of why the employee a daycare decides to hire should go through an extensive interview and training process. If you are in the process of choosing a daycare facility please check out this article.
