New York Day Care Centers

New York day care centers are expensive, with placing a single child in a day care center costing in the range of ten to thirteen thousand dollars per year. Governmental control is high, as is only to be expected, and safety standards that are enforced in New York day care centers are among the most comprehensive in the country. Other areas are also under the government's purview, with activities in the day care centers having to cover all six of the developmental skills. In contrast with this, educational standards for center staff are low, with most staff only having to complete about fifteen hours of training per year. And of course there are background checks, but these checks are curiously superficial, and do not include, as do many states, a check of FBI fingerprint databases. Yes, there's a check of the child abuse registry, but a similar check of the sex offender databases is considered unnecessary.
