BRIDGEPORT - The Bridgeport day care center that was forced to shut down earlier this month is back open.

Officials at ABCD were forced to close down last week because the building needed roof repairs and the city's Health Department said children could not be inside while the work was being done.

Day care officials say about half of the children they would see on a regular day showed up this morning. They say they want to get the word out that the day care is back open.
