ATLANTA 10-2-11

An analysis of state records has found nearly 500 major incidents at Georgia child care programs over the past five years, including at least eight deaths and 239 injuries.

The analysis also revealed that the Department of Early Care and Learning revokes licenses of child care providers at a lower rate than most neighboring states and relies heavily on fines but rarely uses other sanctions.

Department commissioner Bobby Cagle said his agency is long overdue for an internal review, which he says will begin in November.
