Former day care worker Sara Morales is pictured in front of her home, March 4, 2016, in Loxley, Alabama. Morales worked briefly for day care owner Deborah Stokes at A Step Ahead Christian Day Care but says she quit because Stokes yelled at the children and failed to pay her. The day care, now closed, is one of several Stokes has opened over the past few years. Alleged problems and violations have brought the day cares under scrutiny, with critics saying that because the businesses operate as Christian day cares, they slip through a “religious loophole” that allows them to bypass the licensing and safety standards required of non-Christian day cares. Stokes now operates another day care, Little Nemo’s, in Spanish Fort, Alabama. (Photo by Carmen K. Sisson/Cloudybright)
