If you run a daycare, it might feel like your days are filled with barely organized chaos. Kids are a lot of work! Not only that, but your business (even though you might not think of your daycare as a “business”) is open to a lot of risks. Now, you probably want to focus on the kids and your daycare. You probably don’t want to be dwelling on the what-ifs. So that’s why there’s daycare insurance. How do you get insurance for a daycare? We’ll explain.
How to get insurance for a daycare.
1. Know your risks.
Not that anyone wants to dwell on the doom-and-gloom scenarios, but it’s important to understand your risks. It’s not just about what-ifs and making yourself panic. It’s about knowing what your daycare insurance needs to be able to do. So, consider the following:
- What if a student is injured on your property because they’re just having a blast playing? (Playgrounds are no joke.)
- What if a visitor (i.e. a parent) is injured on your property?
- What if you want to take your kids on a field trip?
- What if you have to transport the children?
- What if someone sues you over bodily injury or property damage?
- What if you or one of your staff members gives medication to the wrong child on accident?
- What if you’re accused of slander or libel?
These are just a few possible what-ifs that might make you uneasy. These are also risks that you need to consider when getting insurance for a daycare.
2. Understand the coverages you might need.
It’s also important to understand the coverages that you might need for your daycare. Here are a few of the main coverages that you can consider for your daycare:
- Student accident
- General liability
- Workers’ comp
- Transportation insurance
- Non-owned liability coverage
- Incidental malpractice
- Professional liability
- Products liability
You may need more coverages than these, though, which is why it’s a good idea to talk to an insurance professional about your specific daycare and the risks you face. Speaking of which, that leads us to our next step – how our insurance professionals can get you the coverages you need for your business.
