List Of Daycares With Violations Or Substantiated Complaints

Posted on: 10:04 pm, May 8, 2012, by , updated on: 05:25am, May 9, 2012

This is a spreadsheet of daycare with violations in the St. Louis area since January of last year. This is what got us started in our investigation. I took this list and requested the inspection files for repeat offenders and centers that had ‘unusual’ sounding violations. I wanted to know what things like ‘unsafe facility’ meant in the report. If you see a daycare on this list and we don’t have the inspection reports scanned online – you can call the State to request a copy yourself.

*This is a facility considered “license exempt” because it is part of a church.  This letter exists because MO State inspectors followed up on a complaint, but there will be no ‘follow up’ inspection and the facility is not on a regular inspection schedule.
