The California Department of Social Services on Thursday said an 8-month-old boy was found dead Wednesday at the Jacqueline Wisniewski Family Child Care Home.
Wisniewski operates the business as Napa Infant and Toddler Care at 3790 Oxford St., Department of Social Services spokesman David Weston said.
The Social Services was notified Thursday of the death and is investigating it with Napa County authorities, Weston said.
Napa police said the boy was found unconscious and unresponsive at 3 p.m. Wednesday at a licensed family day care home in the 3700 block of Oxford Street in Napa. There were no obvious signs of trauma, and an investigation is ongoing, police said.
A woman who answered the phone at Napa Infant and Toddler Care declined to discuss the death. The facility was licensed on Oct. 27, 2014, as a small family child care home for no more than eight children, Weston said.
There have been no known recent complaints about the facility, Weston said.
An unannounced inspection of the facility on July 15 found no deficiencies of regulations during the random, annual visit, according to a Facility Evaluation Report. Two adults and three minors lived in the home at the time of the inspection, according to the report.
Child care services are provided 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Anyone with information about the infant's death is asked to call Napa police detective Pete Piersig at (707) 257-9514 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
