State Cracks Down On Childcare Centers

State officials say they're cracking down on child care centers that have been issued safety violations.

Department of Early Care and Learning Bobby Cagle said inspectors are taking an especially close look at child care centers that have been cited for failing to check that children have gotten off of buses and vans, for leaving children unattended in vehicles and for not filling out the right paperwork for each child.

Officials say they've issued license revocation notices to eight day care centers and forced the emergency closure of two others since July. Officials say 177 daycare centers have been cited for transportation violations.
