Daycare Insurance Coverages

All of us occasionally got hurt when growing up. Children today are no different. But when injuries turn into claims, the right protection needs to be in place.

  • General liability: This coverage protects your business in the event it is found liable for injuring someone or damaging something. Courts expect childcare centers to provide a clean, safe environment. For daycares, common claims surround injury to children. Liability can also arise should a contagious illness or disease spread through the facility.
  • Abuse and Molestation: Protect your business and employees from the most egregious offenses, or allegations thereof. Defense costs for such claims can be extensive and financially crippling. Ensure your childcare insurance provides this essential coverage.
  • Professional liability: Not all injuries are physical. Mental and emotional abuse are common professional liability claims. This coverage also responds should the business be accused of failure to provide proper employee training or screening.
  • Hired and non-owned auto liability: Employee vehicles or other vehicles not directly owned by the business can still present a significant liability that is not covered under other policies. Common risks arise when children are transported in private vehicles for field trips, pick-up, or drop-off.
  • Umbrella liability: Daycare insurance claims can be particularly costly. Umbrella liability is placed over specified coverages to increase total liability limits.

Protection against risks such as fire, wind, lightning, and many others. Coverage can include:

  • Buildings, contents, and equipment.
  • Business Income: One of the greatest threats to a daycare business is the interruption of service. If your business is not able to operate for a period of time due to a claim, your clients will seek care from competitors and will be slow to return once operations are restored. Should your building be damaged such that operations are affected, business income insurance replaces lost net income. It also reimburses additional expenses such as rental of temporary space during reconstruction. Reference our business income calculator.
  • Flood and Earthquake. These risks are typically excluded from property policies. They can either be added to the property policy or (more commonly) covered by separate policies altogether.
Daycare insurance, business auto coverage

A must for any daycare that transports children in any capacity, whether pick-up, drop-off, field trip, or otherwise. Even if your business does not own vehicles, your business may have risk if employees use their vehicles for errands such as supply runs or picking up mail at the post office. Personal auto policies do not provide protection for business use and will not defend your company if sued for liability arising from business operations.
