In day care centers throughout Florida, felons have been hired to supervise the health, safety and well being of children. In some instances, the day care worker had a history of violence against children. Yet, because of flaws in Florida law and / or lack of due diligence on behalf of the day care center, dangerous individuals have been hired and continue to be hired by Florida day care centers.
