FARGO – The YMCA of Cass and Clay suspended three day care providers in Fargo after they brought a 4-year-old boy outside Monday with no coat or winter gear.


The boy at the south Fargo location, 4243 19th Ave. S., didn’t want to dress to go outside, said Paul Finstad, YMCA president.

The teacher hoped the boy would change his mind if they brought him out into the cold, along with the child’s boots and coat.
