Answer: Sexual abuse at daycare can be absolutely devastating – and in many cases, parents ask themselves why they didn’t know that there was a problem sooner.

Answer: In far too many cases, physical daycare abuse goes unchecked in Texas because children are not able to tell their parents what is happening to them.

Answer: Ensuring that all workers at a prospective daycare have had criminal record checks and fingerprinting done is a good first step. In addition, parents should ask about any non-daycare workers that may be visiting the daycare and meet not just the administrators but the teachers, workers and anyone that will be having day-to-day interaction…
