A judge has upheld the state's decision to close a Center Grove area day care.
Kid Co. Child Care Center, 2503 Fairview Place, Suite A, had appealed the state's decision to revoke its license. After hearings conducted in November, judge Shanida Sharp-Byrnes ruled this week that the state's decision should stand.
The center was cited for violation of state day care codes more than 50 times this year and was on probation dating back to June 2012.
"The (Division of Family Resources) decision to revoke the Center's license is reasonable due to the Center's ongoing pattern of noncompliance," the ruling states.
The ruling did not have a timeline as to when the center would be required to close. Kid Co. can request an agency review within 10 days and has up to 20 days to submit a letter stating why it believes the ruling is incorrect.
Kid Co. attorney Robert Baker had not read the judge's decision early Friday afternoon and could not comment on the whether the day care would request the review.
