Insuring Your Future: Liability Insurance and Child Care.
Eichman, Caroline; Nicholson, Pat
This guide has been designed to furnish child care providers with information on what to look for when designing a liability insurance package and on the types of insurance policies available. It is intended to serve as a tool for those who need help developing and selecting child care insurance, and for those assessing whether their current policies are adequate. The guide discusses: (1) what liability insurance is; (2) liability insurance policy options; (3) steps to designing a liability insurance policy; (4) the responsibilities of the policyholder; and (5) practical applications of child care liability insurance. A directory of child care liability insurers is also provided, which gives the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of 25 insurers, as well as detailed descriptions of each company's liability policies. Three appendixes list state-imposed liability insurance requirements for child care providers, the addresses and telephone numbers of state child care licensing offices, and national organizations that can provide information on child care regulations and issues.
