What Types of Insurance Coverage Do Daycare Centers Need?
Daycare insurance, also known as childcare insurance or daycare liability insurance, is a type of insurance coverage designed specifically for businesses that provide child care services.
Daycare insurance typically includes several types of coverage to address various risks and potential claims that may arise in the childcare setting. Some common daycare insurance policies may include the following:
- General liability insurance may help provide financial protection against claims of bodily injury or property damage that occur on the premises.
- Professional liability insurance, also known as errors and omissions insurance, may help provide financial protection for daycare providers against claims related to professional negligence or failure to meet expected standards of care.
- Commercial property insurance may help cover damage or loss of physical assets, such as buildings, playground equipment, furniture and toys, resulting from events like fire, theft or vandalism.
- Business interruption insurance may help daycare providers recover lost income and cover ongoing expenses if a covered incident temporarily shuts down their operations, such as a fire or natural disaster.
- Workers’ compensation insurance may help cover medical expenses and lost wages if an employee is injured or becomes ill while working. North Carolina requires businesses employing three or more workers to maintain workers’ compensation coverage.
The specific coverage and policy limits may vary depending on the insurance provider and the unique needs of the daycare center. Carefully review your policy terms and consult with insurance professionals to ensure appropriate coverage for your specific business operations and potential risks.
