State Launches Awareness Campaign On Unlicensed Day Cares

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Louisiana has launched a public awareness campaign for parents seeking child care services after a 22-month-old girl died in the care of an unlicensed day care.

         WAFB-TV’s Cheryl Mercedes reported Thursday the campaign aims to help parents track illegal childcare center operators. Angel Green was two months shy of her second birthday when she died inside a hot van registered to Sheila Newman outside an unlicensed daycare center June 5. Investigators discovered Newman ignored a judge's orders to not run a day care.

         Louisiana state superintendent of education John White says after speaking to the child's mother, he realized something needed to be done to help the public find affordable health care.
