Canton child care facility shut down after ‘high-risk investigation’

A Canton child care facility has been shut down by the state of Michigan after a ‘high-risk investigation’ found serious problems in the way children were being cared for.

According to the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA), Mithu Home Day Care in Canton was shut down last Thursday, Oct. 7, after an investigation into the facility.

LARA did not release specifics of the investigation but said that the Child Care Licensing Bureau received a complaint on Wednesday, Oct. 6, regarding the daycare and the licensee, Vagula Aroulselvam, and the high-risk investigation was launched.

These types of investigations meet one of three criteria: child abuse or neglect suspected in a child's death, a child is a victim of suspected sexual abuse or sexual exploitation, or child abuse or neglect resulting in a severe injury to the child.

The state's report released to FOX 2 redacted the information regarding the report and the investigation. The day after the report was filed, the license was suspended for Aroulselvam and Mithu Home Day Care.
