State Finds Group to Run Public Employees Day Care Center


West Virginia officials have found a group to run a day care center at the Capitol complex for children of public employees.

The Department of Administration says Discovery Kingdom Child Care will take over the West Virginia Public Employees Day Care Center.

Discovery Kingdom Child Care currently runs a child care center in Charleston with more than 100 children.

Kanawha County Schools has said it will stop operating the Capitol complex day care facility after Dec. 2. The Kanawha school system has been in charge since the center’s inception in 1992.

The change-over date will be determined during the transition period.

The center serves children from six weeks through five years of age.
