Daycare Safety & Injury Prevention

Daycare provision is increasingly becoming a necessity for families across America. According to a 1997 study by the Consumer and Product Safety Commission, 13 million children were placed in daycare settings. During that same year it was reported that 31,000 children visited the emergency room due to injuries occurring in daycare and school settings. As more and more children attend daycare settings each day, there is an increasing concern for their safety.
