County checking on Christian daycare status
Placeholder Image

IN BRIEF: The county will be following up on the status of the Christian daycare center that was recently denied renewal of its special use permit in the county to see if its state license has been terminated.

TGS Kidz, Inc. had been denied a county special use permit in July that allowed the daycare to operate in a former church, located at 2360 Old Covington Highway.

"Since the decision of the Board (of Commissioners)... there does not seem to be any activity there," said Rockdale County Planning and Zoning Director Marshall Walker at Tuesday's Board of Commissioners meeting.

"They don't have to vacate the property," said Walker, but they do have to stop taking care of children as a daycare facility.

The business had 30 days to appeal the BOC's July 23 decision.

An investigation by Bright from the Start, the state agency that oversees child care and early education facilities, was conducted in May after complaints had been made. The daycare had corrected some items but reportedly had not provided CPR certification for the staff and directors to Bright from the Start, according to Walker. The daycare was given until June 26 and then until July 8 to correct the issues.
