This isn't the first time an order to close the facility has been issued. In 2012, a leaky roof sent water rushing into classrooms.

The child care center is housed in the Hall Neighborhood House, which owns the building.

Its director wouldn't talk on camera to News 12, but says he will meet with ABCD so that both sides are on the same page when it comes to proper maintenance.
