Edelmira Sanchez remembers when her stomach was always in knots. Reeling from a painful divorce, she worked two jobs just to put milk and cold cereal on the table.

And how do you know whether dangerous conditions could be fostered at places that on their face look like God's gift to a conscientious parent?

More than 200,000 children in licensed day care in Los Angeles County are potentially among the most vulnerable in an earthquake because no regulations exist requiring safety glass, bolted bookcases, extra supplies of food and water or even working flashlights in child-care centers, experts say.

At Para Los Ninos Child Care Center, staff and volunteers strive to teach youngsters far more than how to avoid fights and stack blocks. The center, nestled in downtown Los Angeles' garment district, wants its 4-year-olds to be prepared to read when they enter the next pressure-packed level: kindergarten. "It's so important to introduce the children to reading early on," said Kate Ra, a teacher at the center. "It helps them learn how to share different ideas and see that books can be fun."
