Tougher checks on child-care licenses proposed

A state senator whose district includes a child-care center that had its licensed revoked because a registered sex offender was living at the same ­address is demanding that state officials devise an “immediate action plan” to respond to gaps in oversight.

Senator Kathleen O’Connor Ives, Democrat of Newburyport, also plans to file legislation this month that requires more thorough checks of anyone associated with child-care centers or living on the premises through the state Criminal Offender Record Information and the Sex Offender Registry.
