A Center Grove area day care that the state tried to shut down got a fresh start when a new owner took over last year, but inspectors are continuing to find similar problems.

Inspectors have cited Smiley’s Early Learning Center, formerly Kid Co., for 48 violations since the beginning of this year. The day care at 2503 Fairview Place has been put on probation by the state until July and been asked to fix problems or deficiencies, including training staff in CPR, first aid and child abuse reporting, and having proper equipment, insurance documents and registrations on day care buses.

The state attempted to close the day care when it was run by the previous owners after the state found repeated violations for staff using physical discipline, failing to properly supervise children and not having proper drug and medical tests and training for staff members.
