Nursery Schools & Daycare Abuse and Neglect
Too often we hear about the abuse and neglect many children are subjected to while in a nursery or daycare setting. Children are frequently neglected or physically abused by staff members who are inadequately trained or screened. Many day care facilities do not properly educate or screen their staff resulting in the hiring of careless and sometimes dangerous employees. Many times there is inadequate staff to supervise and protect the children. As a consequence children are often the victim of physical and emotional abuse, sexual assaults and a variety of other horrible acts.
Since these innocent victims cannot protect themselves it is critical to report any instance of suspected child abuse or neglect. There are many state agencies that can assist you in these matters.
