In Paducah, Kentucky, a day care director has been charged with a crime for leaving a three year old boy on the day care center van. WPSD-TV reported that Tanashea Young was charged with the crime after she took the van to a repair shop for repairs. The child was left on the van and was later found after the van was lowered from the rack or lift where it was being repaired. Ms. Young reported that she knew that the child was still in the van. This really did not make sense in that the child was left in the van while it was placed up on a lift. What parent or diligent day care director would put the child in such a position?

It is vital that day care centers have a checklist for arrival and departure of students to and from the day care center and especially when children are being transported by the day care center.
