daycares

Three of five kids killed in a fire at a home child care center in Pennsylvania were the children of a volunteer firefighter who was responding to another call, an official said Monday.

OHIO LEGISLATURE

Parents of children in Ohio daycares sometimes don’t know when unsafe behavior is happening in those facilities. But a bill that’s working its way through the state legislature is designed to change that.

The bill by Republican Rep. Rick Carfagna is named “Chase’s Law” after a two-year-old who was left behind on a field trip by his caretakers. He was found safe, but the daycare did not inform his parents or the state until three days later. And Carfagna says the other parents with children in the daycare didn’t know either.
