So, just one thing I want to add is, just listen to your children, just look at your kids anytime we entrust day care workers with our children, because I’m a parent first of all, so always look and ask questions, and always discuss and ask questions with other parents and see what their experiences are,” said Lt. Leslie Irving, WPD public information officer.
