Rationale for Reasonable Suspicion of Program Violation:
The Department of Children and Families suspended this child care provider from the Wisconsin Shares program due to a combination of red flags signifying Shares violations and investigative findings. The Department has evidence that the provider reported large numbers of children in attendance when the Department observed no children in attendance on the same dates and times. The Department has evidence that the provider reported large numbers of children in attendance when the Department observed a significantly lower number of children actually in attendance. The Department was also unable to gain access to the provider’s day care facility during the provider’s stated hours of operation on six separate occasions during an eleven day span. The unsuccessful attempts to verify the presence of children attending the facility raises a strong and reasonable suspicion that the provider is billing the Wisconsin Shares program for children that do not actually attend.
