Department spokeswoman Erin James said the South Maple Avenue center was cited for violating child care regulations related to physical discipline, harsh language and ridicule or threat of harm.
Three child care workers who were involved with the Oct. 2 complaints were immediately suspended, said Greensburg YMCA Interim CEO Suzanne Printz. Each has since been terminated and their supervisor was placed on leave.
The department’s Office of Childhood Development and Early Learning is working with center officials to create a corrective action plan to address the violations, she said. After that plan is approved, state officials “will follow up to ensure the plan has been successfully implemented,” James said.
