Even if you’ve done your research and chosen a reputable child care provider, daycare abuse unfortunately still happens in Texas. Abuse and neglect that occur at daycare often go undetected and unreported. This sometimes has to do with the age of the child and their inability to report the abuse. It also has to do with the fact that not all daycare abuse is physical abuse that will leave visible markings.
There are various types of abuse that can take place in a daycare facility. This can include direct physical abuse from daycare staff. This can also include sexual abuse by daycare employees. Negligent behaviors such as not providing a child with enough food, water, and medical care are also considered abuse.
Children who are neglected in a daycare are also susceptible to injuries. Understaffed child care centers or facilities with poorly trained employees often leave children unsupervised. This can lead to falls off of beds, tables, and on the playground. Improper supervision can also lead to a child getting into substances that can cause them harm. Children can also be harmed if daycares do not regularly inspect buildings, playground equipment, toys, and more.
