Description

WESH-TV investigates "how the state of Florida tracks and monitors day cares" and finds that "no such system exists." The analysis finds that "nearly 44 percent of all day cares have broken the law at least once during the past five years" and "twenty-three percent of them had repeatedly violated the law." The series exposes problems like shortage of staff, "children left alone, others wandering across streets and into neighbors' {businesses or} yards ... falsifying training records {and actually operating without a license}." The reporters also reveal that "some day cares change their names ... but nit their questionable way of doing business." The television websites provides a list of day cares that have been cited and/or fined by the state Department of Children and Families.
