Parents To Work For Stricter Day Care Regulations

WICHITA, Kan. (AP)-- A Wichita couple whose son died while at day care is using their tragedy to push for stronger regulations of day care providers.

Brock and Christina Mosier won a $950,000 judgment against day care provider Karin Patterson last month. Their attorney, Blake Shuart, says the award is only symbolic because Patterson did not have insurance when the Mosier's son, Bryce, died while in her care in 2011.

Shuart says the couple plans to lobby the legislature next year to make child care providers' information, such as background, inspection reports and disciplinary actions, available online. They also want all licensed child care providers to be required to carry liability insurance.

The Wichita Eagle reports Patterson no longer holds a day care license.
