Sioux Falls Day care license suspended after child wanders away twice

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – Officials say a decision on the status of a Sioux Falls day care center’s license will be made after a police investigation is complete.

The state Department of Social Services temporarily suspended the Child Center’s license last week after a child twice wandered away from the facility. Police say they received calls on June 10 and June 12 about a child found wandering about five blocks from the center.

Social services spokeswoman Tia Kafka says the department can suspend a license if officials find that public health, safety or welfare require emergency action.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens says the case is still under investigation.
