Two places stand out above ALL others for QUALITY, decency and learning in the York Area. Children's First Learning Center and Small Steps.
Not an ad, but experience.

Don't forget Weiglestown Child Care Center (WCCC). By far the best and most recommended in the Dover/West York area.

ALL inspections should be unannounced. Day cares work for days/weeks to clean, get paperwork together, and conduct meetings with staff to know exactly what to expect. The inspections should be completely unannounced multiple times a year. Keep in mind...most daycares put on a show the day of the inspection...and they are watching YOUR kids. Lives I would not want to jeopardize.

Thank You !! I have been saying the same thing for years.Same goes for Child protective services. If you call C.P.S about suspected abuse the morons call ahead and give the people they are going to investigate,if they investigate at all,a heads up, let them know when they are coming. HOW STUPID IS THAT !!!That is like calling a drug dealer and telling them that you are going to raid their house next Tuesday !! A worthless,incompetent,organiza tion.

Amanda, you said it best. Marty, a funny post but so true.
It sounds to me like the OCDEL is trying to make an informal apology for allowing a molester to slip through the cracks and not closing down the daycare in question after several violations were found.
Hey, OCDEL: you failed and failed miserably! Now thanks to YOUR negligence, innocent children have become victims! Your "trained and licensed" inspectors need a swift kick in the arse and tossed to the curb. There are plenty of people that would gladly take those positions that would take their responsibility seriously. A hearty "Thank you" for keeping our children safe (oozing with sarcasm)!

It is important that parents know the difference between someone who is licensed and someone seeking accreditations. People who are licensed by DPW, simply meet the "minimum" requirements for health and safety. People who are seeking accreditation through NAFCC or Keystone Stars are required to meet the "highest" in standards for health, safety, enviornment, interaction, activities, communication, and so much more! For more information on NAFCC visit www.nafcc.org and for Keystone Stars visit www.pakeys.org . Or feel free to contact me for child care resource information at [email protected]

well they missed one in lackawanna county.
a child day care center has an open parking lot for the last 7-8 years!
no painted lines for;
handicap parking space,
employee parking spaces
pick up/drop off points
there is no handicap accessability outside and inside this facility.
since it is an open parking lot,
freight delivery trucks,
school van drivers
all double and triple park and park on the sidewalk.
the children and handicap that attend this facility,
the church goer,
all have to walk in the street just to get around the double and triple cars on the sidealk.
5 days a week
there have been several accidents,
luckily no children hae been hurt.
pick up and drop off points are in the street facing traffic,
rather than in the parking lot,
because of the double and triple parked cars.
can anyone help in getting up to code for a
safe pedestrian and handicap crosswalk,
handicap accessabilty outside an inside this facility,
handicap parking in lot,
pick up/drop off points in lot,
instead of the street facing traffic,
for the safety and health of the children and handicapped that attend this facility?
thanks for any help
