CBS Television 4 based in Miami, Florida conducted an investigation into safety standards and deficiencies into day care centers in South Florida. The investigation led by reporter – Stephen Stock involved the review of over 7000 paper inspection reports of day care centers. With this information, an interactive map was created by geographic region showing the day care center and reports of deficiencies. I commend the I Team at CBS 4 for publishing this important information that can be very valuable to parents researching day care centers for their children. You can read more about this investigation and access the link for the map at Safety Standards Lacking at Many South Florida Day Care Centers.
Unfortunately, parents typically have no notice as to a problem or deficiency at a day care center until their Florida child is seriously injured by the negligence, carelessness, or lack of supervision at the day care center. Owners and day care personnel have a duty to supervision and protect small children at Florida day care centers from every day dangers whether they are present in the classroom, playground, or any other part of the day care facility.
