I took a crack at this tonight.  Wrote a scraper in Ruby using the Mechanize gem.  It grabs all the goodies in the details pages for all 2200 daycares and outputs to CSV.  

It doesn't grab the inspection results, but that wouldn't be too hard to add at this point.  

I hope it helps!  Geocode it and you're ready to map!
