In Clayton, North Carolina, police have charged a 13 year old child with setting fire to a day care center that was under construction. ABC Eyewitness News reported this story. For some reason, the teen allegedly left his home and entered the day care center to set the fire. It was not reported what lead police to this teen or what forensic evidence exist on this matter.
Whatever the cause of the fire, it is a shame that a day care center will have to delay its opening due to this fire. Day care centers, that follow regulations and staff their centers appropriately, provide parents with needed help so that parents can work their jobs and manage their schedules. Day care centers can also be instrumental in educating our children prior to the start of their elementary school years.
