I called their office number after hearing a rumor that they had closed. The message is the director’s voice stating that they are no longer in business. I drove by earlier today and found they had the shelving and some equipment but that there wasn’t anyone there and it was dark. As mentioned in some of the comments of my earlier posts, their website had been locked down for about a week and a half now.
I have no idea what the reasons are behind the closure. I will say it is pretty amazing what the power of a blog can do. I can’t really take all the credit for this, but only because I don’t know why they ended up closing. 😉 I really have no ill feelings towards anyone personally, but someone who is in a position to take care of our beautiful children should be under the highest scrutiny and realize that such a business needs to be run with integrity and consistency, not to mention following the standards and practices set forth by the State Government and other agencies.
To those who may have anonymously taken some part in this situation, thank you. It’s you folks that really make us parents feel safe about leaving our children in the hands of other people. My hope is that others who have experienced this sort of problem, whether in child care or otherwise, will make the effort to bring forward these issues. Be careful not to exaggerate or “slander” by being untrue. Remember, blogging is a new force and it can be a powerful tool.
