The Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) said it has issued an Order for Intended Emergency Closure for a day care where a 3-month-old boy was found unresponsive in his crib Tuesday and later died.
DECAL Chief Communications Officer Reg Griffin said in a statement that in the case of Generation Kids Preschool Nursery, the agency "found that rule violations may have contributed to the death of a child."
Griffin said that "emergency closures are used by the agency when it is determined that there has been a death of a child that was not medically anticipated."
On Tuesday, Action News pulled the day care’s latest inspection reports and found several violations. One report says that an infant highchair was missing the proper safety straps, and another said a blanket and washcloth were left in the crib used by a 2-month-old.
Parents with any questions are asked to contact DECAL at 1-877-ALL-GA-KIDS or visit www.allgakids.org.
