Overview

Managers, owners and directors of day care centres and other child care facilities alike all know the importance of safety in their businesses. However, accidents can and do happen.In Canada, schools and public parks are the most prevalent locations for incurring playground injuries that result in a child’s visit to an emergency department (36 per cent and 34 per cent, respectively).*

With AIG’s Day Care Insurance, child care groups can provide key accident and medical benefits for staff members, volunteers, and enrolled children in the event of a covered accident. These plans complement an organization’s general liability (GL) plan by covering injuries under a separate accident policy as well as providing supplementary medical coverage for insureds.
