The 17-month-old girl was found in about 4 feet of water. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.
An autopsy has been ordered.
Her name has not been released.
She was one of a half-dozen children at the state-licensed day care.
The pool is gated, and a deck connects it to the house. Police say there was an adult on the premises.
