According to the Insurance Journal, an estimated 2,500 daycare programs in Georgia have failed to meet the state’s standards for children’s health and safety at least once in the past four years.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution also investigated Georgia’s daycare programs. The report found that 220 daycares received a failing score for at least two years in a row, and at least 200 of those day cares are still open.
One facility in Marietta encountered 191 violations in the last four years, including starving a child and releasing a child to the wrong parent, who happened to be blind. Unfortunately, some daycare facilities in Georgia are so neglectful that children experience severe injury or even death.
