Strict day-care standards? You bet

Did Justin Moyer [“D.C. day-care licensing criticized,” Metro, Sept. 20] really mean to suggest that we should lower standards for day-care facilities in the District? As the mother of a 2-year-old in an excellent D.C. day-care program, I take comfort in the high standards and strict requirements governing child-care providers in Washington. It is completely reasonable for officials to consider how many small children a potential provider already has in the home, or to require a fence to keep toddlers from running into the street. While I’m sure the process could be streamlined, let’s not suggest that we lower the standards for those doing a very important job — taking care of our children.
