Georgia Day Care Regulations Changing

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

Georgia day care regulators are changing some rules and adding others in an effort aimed at better protecting and educating children. The changes affect everything from teacher training and screening to safe sleeping. A new requirement that Georgia day care workers receive federal fingerprint background checks passed in the Georgia House of Representatives. A Senate committee is now considering the measure. Unlike most states, Georgia now requires only state background checks, and last year day care providers had opposed federal checks. Also, proposed new safe sleeping rules are to take effect soon. These would allow day cares to use only specially pre-approved cribs.
