WATERTOWN, MASS. (WHDH) - The death of an infant at a child care center in Watertown has prompted officials to shut down the program, a spokeswoman for the state’s Executive Office of Education said.
Strawberry Child Care, located at 124 Watertown St., received an emergency suspension/revocation order on Sept. 20 following a Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) preliminary investigation into the baby’s death.
The EEC claims the care center “placed infants and children at risk by failing to administer CPR during an infant’s medical emergency, failing to exercise good judgement during an emergency, and failing to adequately supervise infants enrolled in the program,” the order reads.
Families with children in the program were referred to the EEC’s regional office for assistance in finding alternative childcare, according to the spokeswoman.
The investigation into Strawberry Child Care is ongoing.
