Tammy was a desperate mother who called Cedar Valley Preschool and Child Care for help.
Tammy’s oldest daughter, age 12, could stay home after school, but her nine year old and two year old sons needed services urgently. After calling 41 providers and trying an unregistered home provider for a month, the “red flags” were profuse.
