Here’s something you don’t see too often. The health department issued a daycare center on the west side of Columbus a Warning Letter.

The Franklin County Public Health Department said Aminata’s Daycare, 5125 West Broad Street, is not Up To Code, and issued the business a Warning Letter for repeated uncorrected critical violations.

Among the concerns? Open bags of sugar in a cabinet with rodent feces.

NBC 4 Investigator Tom Sussi said that twice, over the past 11 days, the Franklin County Public Health Department has inspected the daycare center. Inspectors uncovered a total of 42 violations including 13 critical ones.

  • Evidence of rodent droppings, and general sanitary conditions.
  • Inspector noted the business must hire a licensed pest control operator.
  • Inspectors also noted that kitchen equipment and utensils are not being sanitized.

All violations this daycare center has been warned about before – but failed to correct – which is why the health department issued them a Warning Letter.

When Sussi dropped by the business to get some answers, a woman who wouldn’t identify herself refused to answer any of his questions, or open the door to talk.

If the daycare center fails to correct the violations – including the source of the rodent feces – the owner could face an administrative hearing.
