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. These were identified through quantitative data showing the provider billed for over $13,650.78 annually per child and serving 1.875 children per licensed slot. The suspension was based upon the provider’s: 1) failure on two occasions within 10 days to provide access to the day care facility during the provider’s stated hours of operation; 2) failure to have attendance records available at the child care site when the department requested to review them, the provider informed the investigator that they had not completed the attendance records for the last 5 days and attempted to begin writing in times on the attendance sheet, before being stopped by the investigator; 3) failure to maintain and submit accurate attendance records as required by the Shares program, the investigator observed that the attendance reports appeared to document a schedule rather than the actual sign in and sign out times for each child in the provider’s care; and 4) prior licensing citations for failing to maintain accurate and current attendance records.
