Day cares fall below standards

Lee Rood of The Des Moines Register checked state child care facility inspection records to find that "at least one in 10 licensed centers — including several newer programs — failed to meet several of the state's minimum standards for health and safety during their last licensed renewals." Many of the programs receive only sporadic oversight, with inspectors visiting as little as once a year. "Licensing records do not always include details of abuse allegations or document how centers resolve serious safety issues, such as complaints about lack of supervision."
