NBC Connecticut reports that federal inspectors have uncovered unsafe conditions at 20 daycares across Connecticut. Inspectors from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services made unannounced visits to daycares that receive federal funding. According to a new report, 20 had unsafe conditions, including exposed electrical wires, cots for children left outside in the elements, and household chemicals left within the reach of children. In one instance, a daycare provider was charged with risk of injury to minors after inspectors found five children unattended in the house. Two other providers gave up their licenses after the reviews. The report did not name the daycares, but said they were located in Hartford, New Britain, New Haven, Bridgeport, East Hartford, Waterbury, Windsor and Windsor Locks. For the full story click here.
