INADEQUATE SUPERVISION CITED
After her group-family daycare license was revoked by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS), C.L. filed an administrative proceeding [pursuant to CPLR Article 78] to annul that determination.
On its review of the dispute, the Appellate Division, First Department, noted that certain child day care regulations had been violated and that these breaches jeopardized the “health, safety, and welfare" of the children in C.L.'s custody and control.
Apparently, an unsupervised 3-year-old managed to walk out of her facility and was intercepted by a stranger who brought the youngster to a local police precinct. That and other problems lead the OCFS to conclude that C.L. was unable to provide “competent supervision.” (It also didn’t help her case that this “serious incident” wasn’t properly reported.)
Given that factual backdrop, the AD1 didn’t think the revocation was an inappropriate penalty and left the outcome undisturbed.
Unfortunately, there's no revoking that.
