Charlotte’s Webb Learning Center’s (the Center’s) rule violations led to a child being left in one of its vehicle for hours.  This incident, as well as the lack of cooperation and candor the Center’s owner and staff members exhibited during an investigation into the incident by the Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL), led to the emergency closure of the Center.  Based upon the egregiousness of the conduct giving rise to the emergency closure and the Center’s continued inability to comply with transportation rules as demonstrated by additional rule violations observed by DECAL monitors at the Center in the days leading up to issuance of the order for emergency closure, DECAL’s decision to revoke the Center’s license was affirmed.
