INDIANAPOLIS - A troubled Greenwood day care is closing its doors effective Aug.16, the Call 6 Investigators have learned.
Marni Lemons, spokeswoman for the Family and Social Services Administration, said the day care -- Smiley’s Early Learning Center/Kid Co -- is closing voluntarily.
According to day care spokeswoman Joyce Yant, the day care owner Sherita Newbern has been paying the landlord, but the landlord has not been paying the bank.
Yant said the bank is now taking over the facility and it will likely end up in foreclosure.
The day care is helping parents find other child care options, said Yant.
Smiley’s Early Learning Center/Kid Co was cited by the State Fire Marshal repeatedly in 2014 for violations including missing information on its fire drill records and problems with emergency lights and exit signs.
