State Representative Joel Kitchens recently toured the Door County YMCA Barker Child Development Center, on Egg Harbor Road in Sturgeon Bay. Kitchens was there to see and hear firsthand the requirements that a daycare provider in Wisconsin must do in order to receive a five-star certification. The Barker Child Development Center is the only five-star rated center in Door County.
