A: If you discover that your daycare has violated multiple security procedures, the first step is to address the issue directly with the daycare management. Document your concerns and the specific procedures that were breached. Ask for a meeting to discuss these concerns and understand what steps they will take to rectify the situation.

If the response from the daycare is not satisfactory or if you believe the violations are serious and pose a risk to the children's safety, consider escalating the matter. This can include filing a complaint with the state agency responsible for regulating child care facilities. In Utah, this is typically the Department of Health or the Office of Child Care.

Maintaining open communication and documenting all interactions and responses is important. If the situation involves potential legal violations or you feel your child's safety is at risk, consulting with an attorney experienced in childcare and family law may be a prudent next step. Remember, your primary concern is the safety and well-being of your child and others at the daycare.
