You will absolutely want a screen protector. Getting it in and out of the dock will scratch it to hell if you don't have one.
Anecdotal counterpoint - I have a 9 and 12 year old and we've had the system since Christmas. Use it both handheld and in the dock - no protector and no scratches.
Query: Do your smaller meatbags remove the device from it's dock often?

Response: Yes, they use it about half the time docked and the other half handheld. Both remove it (so it's not like only the 12 year old does it) and replace it. They do know that I would be extremely displeased with scratches, so they are probably pretty careful. But they are still kids, so not that careful. :)

Ditto. 12 year old with motor skill disabilities and a 10 year old. So far, no scratches. It's in and out of the dock 2 or 3 times a day, typically.

They are completely careless with it. Hell, I wasn't aware of any risk using the dock so I haven't been particularly careful myself.

I don't use a screen protector. Hadn't been scratched yet taking it in and out.

Given that the Switch's screen is plastic, not glass, a screen protector is probably more necessary than on many other devices.
