CG area day care closed




A Center Grove area day care that was taken over by new owners after its state license was revoked shut down suddenly last week.

Smiley’s Early Learning Center, 2503 Fairview Place, closed Friday after the owner discovered money she was paying to the center’s previous owner was not being applied to bank payments and taxes, Smiley’s spokeswoman Joyce Yant said.

More than $27,000 in back taxes, stormwater liens and late fees are due on the Center Grove building, and the property is listed in this year’s tax sale, according to the Johnson County Treasurer’s Office. Smiley’s Franklin location on Lovers Lane, which also closed earlier this summer, has about $15,000 in overdue taxes.
