Day Care Owner Accused Of Hiding Children During Inspection

A state official says that a Frankfort woman has agreed not to operate a child day care facility out of her home. State investigators allegedly found nine children hiding in a crawlspace there.

Spokesman Robert Hester of the Division for Regulated Child Care says Robin Tracy agrees not to care for more than three unrelated children at her home.

Hester says Tracy agreed that if she violated the order, she would be fined a thousand dollars for the first violation up to 32 thousand dollars.

State officials say they went to Tracy's home on Monday to investigate claims she was running an illegal day care service.

The officials allegedly found 12 children there, including nine in a crawlspace.

    She should be fined but she isn't necessarily a menace to the child care business. It's possible for one person to care for 12 children. It's just not recommended or approved by the state governing board. Anyone who has ever taught a Sunday School or Bible School class would agree. I do think she was an utter moron and complete nut for placing the extra kids in the crawlspace. Now that is the part that is pathetic and abusive. She should have just took her fine and stopped breaking the rules instead of trying to hiding them in a disgusting crawl space.

    This lady should be fined the max. How can you care for 12 children. What kind of parent would leave there child with this woman. I just hope the parents didn't know.
