ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – There are new state emergency regulations aimed at improving safety and accountability at child care programs.

Currently, New York State is authorized to suspend or revoke a care provider’s license if he or she poses an imminent danger to a child. However, “imminent danger” was never clearly defined.

Now The Governor’s Office has announced specific circumstances where action can be taken. These include insufficient staff-to-child ratios, failure to get medical treatment for a child in need and poor sanitary conditions among other, detailed guidelines.
