STATE PLACES FAMILY DAY CARE LICENSE OF SAN CARLOS WOMAN ON ONE-YEAR PROBATION

 SACRAMENTO, Calif., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a hearing, the California Department of Social Services has placed on one year probation the family day care license held by San Carlos resident Jenny Young, on charges that she engaged in conduct inimical to the health, welfare and safety of children in care.
 "Most family child care home operators in California provide nurturing, supportive care for children," said department director Eloise Anderson. "However, a few ignore the rules and regulations established to ensure the safety of the children in their care. When we find such a situation, we must protect the children and take legal action against the facility's operator."
 According to department records, on Oct. 7, 1992, Young left a three-year-old child strapped in a car seat in her car while she was away from the vehicle. As a result, a complaint was filed in November with the department's community care licensing office in San Bruno, and an investigation followed. Young's license was suspended for 90 days, however, that action was stayed and the licensee was placed on a one year probation. The probation began June 10, 1993, following a hearing before Administrative Law Judge Michael C. Cohn in San Bruno.
 During the probationary period, Young was ordered by the hearing officer to "...obey all laws of the United States and the State of California and all rules and regulations of the Department of Social Services which apply to her license." She was originally licensed on April 8, 1992, with a capacity of six children.
 Family day care homes are licensed by the department under the state's Health and Safety Code. Of over 85,000 community care facilities licensed in California, more than 47,500 are facilities providing care for less than 24 continuous hours to children in a residential setting. Over 339,200 children are cared for in these licensed family day care facilities. In San Mateo County alone, more than 1,100 family day care homes are licensed, which provide care to over 8,300 children.
 For information about the state's community care licensing program and family day care home regulations, contact one of the five California Department of Social Services' Community Care Licensing Division offices in the San Francisco Bay area. Their addresses and telephone numbers are listed in the white pages of the telephone directory under the State of California listings.
