Daycares provide an essential service by helping to secure, nurture, and educate children during their most important years. Whether you run a large daycare with its own playground or provide in-home care to a single family, it’s important to have the right childcare insurance in place to safeguard your business and give your clients the peace of mind of knowing their little ones are in responsible hands.
Professional liability insurance is also regarded as Errors & Omissions insurance, or if you are in the medical space, Medical Malpractice insurance. It is used to protect businesses against negligence claims due to providing (or not providing) professional advice or services.
The cost of your insurance will vary based on your location, the size of your facility, and other factors that will determine what types of coverage should be included in your policy. At a minimum, institutions that care for young children like daycares and nurseries are often required by law to have daycare liability.
Daycare liability is a commercial liability with terms and limits tailored to the childcare industry. Normally, commercial liability’s main purpose is to provide financial protection in the event that an injury occurs on the premises of a business or property damage occurs during business operation. Daycare liability is distinct because the individuals at greatest risk for injury on your premises are children.
Other types of coverage relevant to the childcare industry are corporal punishment liability and abuse & molestation liability. Suffice to say that it is critical to ensure that you understand the terms of your insurance policies and that you have the appropriate amounts of coverage to keep your business protected.
