Pol wants to grade day care centers
How safe is your child's day care? It may get a little easier to find out.
A report released Thursday looked at nearly 2,300 group day care centers across the city for the past three years.
It's just the tip of the iceberg to a much larger problem: Kids are the ones that are in danger.
The report found more than 18,000 violations across the city since 2013.
Hundreds of day care centers are repeat offenders and still open for business.
State Senator Jeff Klein proposed legislation that would create letter grade system for city day cares, the same as how New York restaurants are graded with signs.
The senator showed video where day care officials repeatedly lied to undercover parents about having a good track record– when in truth they didn't.
