Statement on Omega Day Care Center:
Attribute to Reg Griffin, Chief Communications Officer
Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning
"The Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) has issued an Order for Intended Emergency Closure of the Omega Day Care Center at 55 Flat Ford Road in Omega, Georgia. Our investigation has shown that this center was responsible for improperly transporting two children to a restaurant without their parents' permission. The director of the center later hit one of the children with her truck and then drove over the child. The child was treated at a local hospital and later airlifted to a hospital in Macon. Our thoughts are with the child and her family. We encourage parents affected by the closing of Omega Day Care Center to connect with child care resources at www.allgakids.org or by calling the toll-free number 1-877-ALL GA KIDS."
"Parents will be assisted in locating quality child care options. DECAL provides this free service to parents. At DECAL, our top priority is the health and safety of our state's young learners, ages birth to five years old."
