If you have noticed bruising or other signs of physical injury when you pick up your child from daycare, it is important that you talk with your child and get an understanding of what has happened.
While daycare staff may explain that the injuries are a result of normal horseplay or other activities, you need to be aware of the warning signs of abuse and what resources you have to protect your child.

Physical warning signs that daycare abuse has occurred could include:
- Fighting with other classmates
- Frequent crying and emotional outbursts
- Fear of going to daycare
- Abnormal or multiple bruises with no explanations
- Pain, itching, bleeding, or bruising around genital areas
- Urinary tract infections
- Sexual behavior or curiosity that is beyond the child’s age
It is important to listen to your kids and to take them seriously if they tell you about something at daycare or at school that makes them uncomfortable or scared.
While young children can be uncomfortable in new and unfamiliar situations and may embellish, listening and asking questions can help you be better safe than sorry.
