Judge Shuts Down Daycare After Toddler Hits The Road

Posted: Updated:

An Ingham County judge has temporarily shut down an Eaton County daycare center.

The ruling comes after a two-year-old managed to wander into the middle of M-99 back in June.

This means Tina Hause, who runs Tina's Tiny Tots daycare, will have to shut her doors immediately.

The state tried to shut down the center shortly after the incident happened, but an attorney for Hause got a restraining order that helped keep the place open.

Today, a judge decided the state does have the authority to at least temporarily close a center until officials hold a hearing.

At that hearing on Tuesday, a judge will decide if the state can revoke Hause's license.

Hause has been a licensed care provider for 34 years.

Her attorney doesn't dispute that the two-year-old, who was under Hause's care, was found in the middle of the road.

But he says she shouldn't lose her license based on one isolated incident.

He says current and former parents will speak at the hearing on Tuesday on Hause's behalf so that she can keep her license.
