Regulating Child Care in Virginia – Part II

(Feb. 9, 2015) This is a follow up show to one that aired on December 15, 2014, regarding the regulation of child care homes in Virginia. Mary Cobb Braxton and Kandy Hilliard discuss some of the legislative hurdles on the day before crossover in the Virginia General Assembly. We discuss proposed bills and legislation that would impact the health and safety of children in childcare homes across Virginia. Special guest Elly Lafkin talks about the death of her daughter Camden in an unregulated childcare home by a provider whose felonies in other states did not come up on a name check. The resulting “Cami’s Law” would require fingerprint background checks of all daycare providers.
