Children who go to nursery schools do so not long before they start infant school. The experience helps to give them structure and provides a learning experience as well. Nursery schools tend to be busy places with parents arriving to drop off and pick up their children as well as employees going about their tasks.
Is it common for accidents to occur in nursery schools?
Children don’t tend to have much appreciation of what is going on around them. Trips and falls are therefore, a lot more common at this young age. However, there is a big difference between this type of normal accident and something that could reasonably have been prevented.
Nursery school injuries can range from minor cuts and bruises to broken bones and other more painful injuries. The question is who was at fault and whether the accident could reasonably have been prevented. Other examples of potential injuries include tripping on an object or hazard that should have been removed. Common examples include spillages that have not been mopped up, causing a hazard that someone else could slip on. This can be very painful and an awkward fall can lead to broken bones for someone of any age.
Who might be at risk from nursery school injuries?
Basically anyone who has reason to be in or around the grounds of a nursery school could be in a position to be injured in some cases. Children are obviously included but parents and employees may also have an accident if the circumstances make it possible.
While children are most at risk, not every accident will be due to negligence. However, if you think negligence might be a factor in your case, it is always best to get more information.
