Post Falls day care shut down after violations

Associated Press

POST FALLS – A Post Falls day care has closed its doors after an investigation by the state’s Department of Health and Welfare found multiple violations.

KREM-TV reported that state inspectors announced earlier this year that Here We Grow day care left 22 children alone in several rooms. In a separate investigation, a 1-year-old was able to leave the day care through a security gate and made it to the parking lot before a staff member noticed.

In a followup investigation, an employee under the age of 18 took a child from one building to another, also unsupervised.

The owner of the day care did not return requests for comment.
