Understanding Insurance for the Day Care Center

Commercial liability coverage for an adult day care center is hard to place. This is due to the administration’s accountability in regard to the delicate state of the elderly placed in their trust. Although the older adult in a day care situation may not be confined to a bed, there may be a situation at any given moment that causes injury that can render him or her into a long-term nursing home environment.

Insurance policies and accompanying premiums for the adult day care are dependent on the associated activities and services, the credentials and experience of the employees, and the amount of supervision provided.

Abuse and molestation insurance is a recommended coverage for the adult day care center.


Insurance for the Child Day Care Center


It is difficult to place liability insurance for a child day care center, nursery or kindergarten or any private preschool. This is due to the involved accountability for caring for young children.

Insurance companies consider the following when insuring a child day care:

  • Children’s age

  • Activities

  • Credentials and experience of staff members

  • Level of supervision provided along with level of observation over staff members

  • Ratio in regard to teachers and children

Insurance policies for a child day care center generally exclude abuse and molestation coverage. It can be purchased for sub-limits to cover defense and claims in regard to negligent supervision.
