What Risks Can Child Care Insurance Help Protect Your Business Against?

Childcare and early learning centres are some of the most lively and unpredictable environments to work in. The most obvious risks that you think of in a childcare setting is personal injury to either a child or a staff member. However, childcare public liability insurance should be considered a necessity as should some other general business insurance products. It's worth considering, for example, how your business would be affected if there was a fire, theft or accidental damage to equipment.

Child care insurance can help protect your business against various risks, including:

  • Liability claims: coverage for claims of bodily injury or property damage that occur on your premises, such as a child getting injured while playing on the playground.
  • Abuse or molestation claims: coverage for claims of abuse or molestation by an employee or caregiver.
  • Property damage: child care insurance can provide coverage for damage to your property, such as a fire or flood
  • Business interruption: coverage for lost income and expenses due to a covered loss, such as a natural disaster.
  • Employee injuries: child care insurance can provide coverage for workplace injuries to your employees, such as slips and falls.

Childcare Centre Insurance Coverage for a Range of Settings:

The unpredictable nature of working with babies, toddlers and young children means that the risk of accidents is higher than in many other professions. And it’s not just the kids that may be injured. Childcare centre staff can be exposed to the risk of injury too, particularly with lots of toys and equipment on the floor. Incidents can happen to the most careful of businesses. That’s where a good childcare insurance package can give you peace of mind and ensure the risks of long term detrimental impact on your business are minimised.

  • Licensed Childcare Centres
