Negligence is common in Houston daycare facilitiesCommon Types of Negligence in Houston Daycares

Houston is the largest city in Texas and the 4th largest city in the country. Many Houstonians, whether they’re in Katy, Tomball, Sugar Land, or the Kingwood, spend their days working and entrust their kids to the care of babysitters and daycares. What do Houston parents need to worry about when they’re sending their kids to daycare?

How Does Lack of Supervision Occur in Houston Daycares?

Daycare neglect can happen for a number of reasons. We commonly see daycare workers watching too many children at one time, being distracted by their phones, or simply ignoring the children in their care. 

Some daycares try to cut corners by ignoring the already low minimum standards on child-to-caregiver ratio limits. We have seen cases where daycares put too many kids in one room with only one caregiver because the daycare owner doesn’t want to hire more staff to accommodate the number of children in their care. Not only is this extremely dangerous for the kids in their care, but it is also illegal.

If a caregiver is unqualified, they may be easily distracted or ignore the children they are caring for. It is imperative that daycare facilities in Houston conduct background checks and ensure that the employees they hire are dedicated and interested in working with children. 

State regulations are put in place to prevent injuries and neglect from happening. Yet, time and time again, kids continue to get hurt as their caregivers cut corners and even ignore the rules.
