State Revokes Hammond Indiana Day Care’s License

HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) _ The state has revoked the license of a northwest Indiana day care and cut off some of its funding after citing it for more than 100 violations.
  The Times reports the Indiana Bureau of Child Care is allowing Northwest Family Services in Hammond to continue operating as it works to resolves the issues. Those problems prompted the Indiana Department of Education to suspend the center’s funding for a federal food program.
  Northwest Family Services Director David Armistead told The Associated Press Wednesday that the center is working with the state to resolve the issues.
  Indiana has cited the center for 117 violations and reminded it to keep poisons locked away from children.
  An investigator also allegedly overheard a staff member saying a child “needed a beating.”
