Hidden dangers at NYC daycares - New York News

Report warns of dangers at NYC daycares

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Several New York lawmakers are sounding the alarm about security and safety lapses at day care centers across New York City.

In a report released Thursday, dozens of daycares cited by the Dept. of Health for serious and critical health code violations since 2010, have not fixed the problems and continue to operate without penalty, according to Senate Co-Leader Jeff Klein and Sen. Diane Savino.

Some of the worst violators were found to have unguarded doors or easy access to cleaning products, endangering the safety and health of young children.

Members of Sen. Klein's staff shot hidden camera video of several violators. The video was posted to YouTube.

Klein and Savino are calling on all daycare centers to post inspection reports on-site and online.

The following centers were highlighted in the report:
