Allendale day care center closing permanently

ALLENDALE, Mich. (WOOD) – A daycare center in Allendale will not reopen after one of its employees was charged with assault.

The license of the Rainbow Child Care Center, which is located on Edgewater Drive, was temporarily suspended on March 2by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. That suspension followed an investigation into a separate incident -- but during the investigation authorities became aware of allegations that an employee at the center assaulted three children under the age of 1.

The employee, Keyonia Sylvia Ratfliff, was arraigned on three misdemeanor assault charges in May.
