State Closes Local Daycare 12 Sep 12

The state has revoked the license of a North Mankato daycare and preschool after an investigation revealed multiple violations. The Minnesota Department of Human Resources has ordered Trinity Daycare and Preschool to close its doors by 6pm on Friday, September 21st after investigators cited the operation for 19 violations, including the physical and verbal abuse of children. Daycare staff are also accused of failing to submit a background study on an individual and of knowingly giving false information regarding compliance with first aid training requirements. The operators of Trinity Daycare have denied the allegations and say they plan to appeal the decision to revoke the license.
