Aberdeen To Consider Revoking Day Care License

February 7, 2011, 6:19 PM by Erich Schaffhauser

Aberdeen To Consider Revoking Day Care License
ABERDEEN, SD - An Aberdeen home daycare provider is facing the possibility of losing her license after a series of events.

The city attorney’s office is recommending the city revoke Michelle Knebel’s daycare license. But her attorney says Knebel is being vilified without any evidence.

Michelle Knebel runs her daycare in northeast Aberdeen.

The city attorney's office and police department both have concerns over her ability to care for children and are asking the city council to take action. In a letter to Knebel, the city attorney's office lays out why.

Knebel is accused of simple assault against a law enforcement officer, which is a felony. But her attorney says she hasn't been convicted and the incident has no connection to the daycare.

It also says a baby at her day care died last year but Knebel's attorney says police investigated the death and it wasn't connected to Knebel or her business.

It also mentions past investigations of domestic assault and child abuse. But again, Knebel's attorney argues those investigations, which involved police and the Department of Social Services, didn't produce any charges.

Knebel's attorney also says that these concerns are coming from the city and not from any of the daycare's families. The city attorney can't comment until the city council takes up the issue.

The council was scheduled to do that Monday but pushed it back until next week.
