The state investigation into Child Care provider fraud in the Wisconsin Shares program includes a child care provider in Rock County.
The Department of Children and Families lists Ketrina’s Kiddie Care of Beloit among the nearly 100 child care providers, mostly in Milwaukee, that have had their state funding suspended.
Communications Specialist for DCF, Stephanie Hayden, says the license of Ketrina’s Kiddie Care was revoked on July 25th as the result of suspected violations of the Wisconsin Shares program. She says the Rock County Human Services Department determined the provider received an overpayment of $1,940.17. According to the reports, Ketrina’s Kiddie Care allegedly submitted hours of attendance for two children for 15 days in which they were not in care as well as for two weeks after a parent’s employment had ended.
Hayden says if after the investigation it’s determined that Ketrina’s didn’t violate the law, their license will be returned and payments in the Wisconsin Shares program will be reestablished.
