Plan would require better-educated providers

Delaware is considering sweeping changes to day care centers that would require better-educated teachers, more staff and smaller groups for nearly 30,000 children, as well as give the state oversight of dozens of private school programs. The goal is to help prepare young children for school and improve the stature of day care workers, said Lynn Jezyk, rule development manager for the state Office of Child Care Licensing.
