Could I be considered negligent becasuse I did not report this to the licensing specialist in a timely manner? If there was blood or I thought it was a serious injury, or an act of aggression I would have but at the time I thought it was just a regular old kid to kid whack on accident. I plan to call the licensing specialist ASAP in th AM. Any advice on how I should approach the situation.
Hello again- I reported the incident, licensing people were very supportive and said I did everything right. The parents were VERY angry and were threatening to sue (I heard through a mutual acquaintence). I could feel that kind of vibe from them when I talked to them, they just weren't being reasonable or even hearing what I was saying. Well, they shopped the little girl around to other daycare's and apparently found out that I really do have a good environment for kids and the school prep is excellent and can you believe...they asked for the child to come back! Then, without waiting for an answer, they said they didn't intend to pay for my week of vacation that they didn't pay while she was gone. Wow! What nerve. Thank you for your positive thoughts that night. I was so scared. Those positive thoughts were on my mind when I talked to them and I realized I need to be surrounded with positive people. I'm not taking them back. I'm so sorry for the sweet little girl. It wasn't her fault. Thanks again.
