Talking

4 year old girl: My first day working at a new center dcg was running up the stairs on the play set. She tripped over her feet and fell face first into the platform. Split her chin open (4 stitches), bit 3/4 way through her bottom lip (26 stitches on the inside, 24 on the outside) and knocked out 4 teeth.

2 year old boy: Tripped over a chair leg and hit his forehead on the table edge. Glued the cut shut in the dr office.

8 year old girl: Missed a step going down the stairs, fell, broke her wrist.

3 year old boy: Sitting on his knees rocking back and forth. Had his hands in his pockets and leaned to far forward causing him to fall and hit his chin on the floor. Split his chin open, 3 stitches.

There were 110 kids total at the center. 6 weeks - 12 years. I worked there for 3 years.

I have been in business for over thirty years and I have had one child that had to get medical treatment from an injury received while in my care. I had a three year boy who got in a disagreement with a three year old girl. The little girl got upset and all of a sudden she pointed her finger at him while yelling at him and poked him right in the eye. He had a scratched cornea. I was in the room sitting not too far away from them when this happened, but just couldn't get to them fast enough to intervene.
