Sexual Abuse in Day Care Centers
Day care providers are entrusted with the safety and well-being of your children. They — along with nannies and other child care services — are designed to give parents peace of mind during their busy days. Unfortunately, many children continue to be neglected, abused or sexually molested by adults and even other children while in what is supposed to be a safe environment.
If your child was sexually abused by a daycare employee or at a daycare center, the law offices of Eisenberg, Rothweiler, Winkler, Eisenberg & Jeck, P.C., is ready to take action on your behalf. You deserve the justice and compensation for your loved one for the actions of the employee or others at the center; we can help you, and we can protect other children from suffering the same fate.

What Constitutes Sexual Abuse?
Sexual abuse does not always involve physical contact and can take many forms. Each of these forms could have a significant impact on a child’s development and future.
Common examples of child sexual abuse include:
- Touching a child’s genital region
- Making the child touch someone else’s genital region
- Showing pornography to a child
- Exposing private parts to a child
- Forcing a child to watch or listen to sexual acts
- Watching a child undress
- Taking illicit photographs of a child
- Giving or receiving stimulation
- Intercourse- vaginal or anal
These activities could occur in day care bathrooms, isolated areas of the center or during after-hour care. As a parent, it is important to understand that what your child went through is not your fault. Sole responsibility rests with those who chose to commit a serious and unforgivable crime.
