Whether to send children to child care, and which facility to send them to, are choices often fraught with concern. Compounding this, Missouri's oversight of child care facilities has been spotty in the recent past. But more information in the hands of parents and guardians can help.
Reveal, public media's first investigative reporting radio show, is back, and they're addressing accountability in child care centers nationwide.
To help you know what's really going on at child care facilities, they've created a map which gives you easy access to state inspection and complaint records (see below).
