Child care center enforcements up 50 percent from 2007
State officials are keeping a closer eye on child care centers.
The state's Bureau of Early Childcare made more than 1,200 enforcement actions last year. That's up 50 percent from 2007, even though the number of day-care centers remained about the same.
Those actions ranged from warning letters to state license revocations.
Regulation director Jill Chase said revocations were up 50 percent, and the number of rejected license requests more than doubled.
