INDIANAPOLIS - A troubled Shelbyville day care will close its doors later this month, Call 6 Investigator Kara Kenney has learned.
KinderCare spokeswoman Colleen Moran said the center has faced decreased enrollment over time and the facility's lease expires later this year.
"We decided to reduce the disruption to our families by closing this center at the end of the school year," Moran wrote in an email to RTV6.
The Shelbyville day care is currently on probation with the state, records show.
Inspection reports show the Family and Social Services Administration cited KinderCare in January for giving a baby the wrong breast milk as well as leaving a toddler unsupervised in a hallway.
Other past issues include citations for inappropriate discipline, missing paperwork, inadequate supervision and not meeting child/staff ratios.
FSSA spokeswoman Marni Lemons said they had not received any formal notification of KinderCare's plans to close.
"We are working with state licensing to provide all of our Shelbyville KinderCare parents with a list of child care resources in the area," said Moran in a statement to RTV6. "We've also been in touch with representatives from the local office of Child Care Resource and Referral. They are available to assist families with finding a new source of child care and early childhood education."
KinderCare is a Level 3 out of 4 on Paths To Quality, a voluntary program aimed at improving child care.
