Lee County day care appeals violation ruling

Posted: Updated:
LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

Wee Kare, a Lee County day care center is appealing a ruling by the state that it violated supervision and transportation rules.

The Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning recently wrapped up an investigation after a 4-year old boy was left on a van for more than two hours one afternoon back in February.

The business could face a wide range of sanctions.

"A license revocation, we have used an emergency closure in some situations," said Chief Communications Officer Reg Griffin. "If there were no prior violations and we found this to be the case, we have issued an enforcement fine. On top of that, restricted their transportation for a period."

No date has been set yet to hear Wee Care's appeal.
