Napa police investigating death of an infant at daycare

NAPA (KRON)—The Napa Police Department is investigating the death of an 8-month-old infant at a family daycare.

The baby was pronounced dead when firefighters arrived at the Jacqueline Wisniewski Family Child Care Home on the 3700 block of Oxford Street in Napa.

Wisniewski runs the business as the Napa Infant and Toddler Care, said Department of Social Services spokesman David Weston.

The Department of Social Services was notified Thursday of the death and is working with Napa County authorities, Weston said.

Napa police found the 8-month-old unresponsive and had no signs of obvious trauma.

The investigation is ongoing.

A woman answered the phone at the facility and decided not to talk about the death. It is a small childcare center for no more than eight children, Weston said.

There have been no known complaints about the facility.

An inspection of the daycare center in July found no violations during the 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.

Anyone with information about the death is asked to call Napa police detective Pete Piersig at (707) 257-9514 or email
