The Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper website reported that a baby boy died while under the care of a babysitter. It appears that the baby was being cared for in an unlicensed day care center in the sitter’s home. The mother and this unlicensed child care provider met through the popular website – Craigslist. While Craigslist is a wonderful tool used by millions of people, the website really does not provide for any background searches or quality assurance checks regarding day care providers or day care centers. Parents and guardians should check with local and state day care licensing authorities before entrusting the care of a child in a “day care center”.
