More Daycare Spots Open in 2003

Laramie, Wy – For over five years Wyoming has seen a continual drop in the amount of childcare available in the state. But, last year that trend ended when 750 new spots opened up in daycares.
The executive director of the Wyoming Children's Action Alliance, Deanna Frey, says this does not necessarily mean all children who need adequate care are getting it. She says the problem is they do not track children who are not in daycare.
Frey says she hears that parents are more worried right now about finding any childcare provider than finding quality care.
She says this is especially a problem for parents with infants and toddlers.
