INDICE DE GALERIAS
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — State regulators have shut down three child care centers around the Twin Cities after finding chronic safety violations and an alleged scheme to falsify training records.
A Minneapolis Star Tribune report (http://bit.ly/14hKgdn ) says the centers are licensed to serve more than 100 children.
State investigators say they found more than 70 licensing violations at three facilities run by Deqo Family Centers. The alleged violations include failure to follow safe-sleep rules, supervise children or hire qualified staff.
The state will revoke the facilities' licenses July 8 unless the facilities appeal.
Deqo has facilities in Minneapolis, St. Paul and Apple Valley. The Star Tribune says the facilities' owner, Yasmin Ali, did not immediately respond to telephone and email messages.
A Dakota County spokeswoman says the county is halted child-care assistance payments to the company.
