Charges may be filed against the operator of a private daycare in Quebec City after a parent showed up this week, only to have the door answered by a six year old girl.
The daycare is in a private home in the borough of Charlesbourg.
The parent called police after entering the house and finding several children asleep inside, but no adult present.
A few minutes later a woman showed up, carrying a case of beer and a few groceries.
Police tell the Journal de Montreal they have forwarded a report and charges may be pending.
Youth Protection has also been brought in, but because the home operates privately , the government cannot get involved because the home doesn't have a licence to suspend or revoke.
Police say the the case is a cautionary tale for parents to check the credentials and references when deciding to use the services of a private daycare operator.
