Regulators propose improvements in day care safety
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- State inspection records for thousands of in-home day care providers could be posted online if legislators approve new safety recommendations.
The Star Tribune reports state regulators will propose a variety of new safety measures in response to a rising number of child deaths in day care homes.
Regulators say posting inspection records online would give parents important information when making a day care decision. Proposals also include increased training for providers and tougher penalties for providers who violate state safety standards.
The proposals to be considered by the Legislature in coming weeks following an investigation by the Star Tribune last year which revealed a sharp increase in the number of children dying at in-home day care settings. There are 11,000 in-home providers across Minnesota.
