Default Daycare Keeps AC Off Till Almost Time For Parents

I have a friend who works for a local, but somewhat large for our town, daycare. Say about 120-150 kids. She noticed it getting very warm recently while at work and has made suggestions about keep the air a little cooler to the management/ownership of the daycare.

Nothing has changed recently, but she noticed one day that it got really cool in the room a half hour before parents began showing up. Earlier her little charges were napping and two of them had very wet hair from sweating. She began noticing each day that this seemed to occur almost without fail. I told her to note down times and such, and after a few weeks we came to the conclusion that the ownership of the daycare definitely keeps things warm until such time as the parents start arriving.

Several other employees have noticed this happening also. So it seems our owners want to save a buck by sweating the staff and the charges they are responsible for. Who can this be reported too? Is it even illegal?

thanks

I don't have a set temperature that is regulated by the state for warmer weather, the only guideline that I am legally required to follow, is that the temperature be above 68*

with that being said, the heat is kept at 72-74* in winter, and my central air is at 76-78 in summer.

same here...in weather above 82, I think, we are required only to provide a fan. I have central air, so I don't know the exact number, to be honest. I would never let it get that hot anyway.

Agreed with Heidi. Too hot is too much.

Check your licensing regs. I am guessing if they have that many kids that they also have infants. Our regs say that the temperature in any room where infants are sleeping can not be more than 75 deg.

I must keep the temperature between 70 and 82 degrees at all times. I am also required to have proper ventilation by way of windows and fans in warm weather.

What state are you in? We can do some digging for you.

Which state are you in? You need to get in touch with the licensing authority of that state and report the matter to them. This extremely hot temperatures is not acceptable.
