Accidents happen! At some point, it’s likely that something will happen at your center and you will need to fill out an incident report form at your childcare center. When an incident occurs and a child is hurt, it’s crucial that they’re taken care of and a parent is notified in a timely manner. An incident report form makes it easy to outline who was hurt, where, what happened, and who was notified. 

Using our free incident report form template, you can stay organized and calm when an accident occurs. You’ll also be able to record any important information about the incident and notify parents easily and quickly. 

Having thorough records of any incidents that occur at your center will help protect your center in legal situations and also help prevent future incidents from reoccurring. If you’re in need of a clear and thorough accident report template, download Kangarootime’s free Incident Report Form template at the bottom of this post.
