Many parents choose to employ the services of a nanny or daycare when they have to work or attend other events. When a parent chooses to do this, they are entrusting care providers with something extremely precious to them – the well-being of their child. As such, child care providers have a responsibility to provide the best care possible to the children they are responsible for. Unfortunately, there are care providers who not only neglect to provide the care a parent expects, but also go so far as to severely neglect or abuse the children in their care.
