October 14, 2021 - The Dept. of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA), Child Care Licensing Bureau (CCLB), has summarily suspended and issued a notice of intent to revoke the family child care home license of Vagula Aroulselvam, located at 45027 Thornhill Court, in Canton.

The high-risk special investigation concluded on October 7, 2021 and found violations of the Child Care Organizations Act and administrative rules. Due to the nature of a high-risk special investigation, one or more of the following conditions had to be met:

  1. Child abuse or child neglect is the suspected cause of a child's death.
  2. The child is a victim of suspected sexual abuse or sexual exploitation.
  3. Child abuse or child neglect resulting in severe physical injury to the
    child.

Effective October 7, 2021, the summary suspension order prohibits Aroulselvam from operating a family child care home at 45027 Thornhill Court, in Canton, or at any other address or location. Accordingly, she may not accept children for care after that date and time. The order also requires the licensee to inform all parents of children in her care that the license has been suspended and that she can no longer provide child care.

It was critical to take emergency action to protect the health, welfare, and safety of the children at this family child care home. 

Since LARA has summarily suspended the license, an administrative hearing will promptly be scheduled before an administrative law judge with the Michigan Office of Administrative Hearings and Rules.
